Journey to Mosaic 2017
November 9 @ 2:00 pm - November 12 @ 2:00 pm
The Journey to Mosaic brings together Christians from diverse backgrounds for an interactive experience that explores the stories of Asian-Americans, African-Americans, Latinos, Native Hawaiians and Native Americans in the Northwest. This mobile seminar seeks to break down racial and ethnic barriers that exist in the body of Christ, and to create space for conversation with the experience that moves us from knowledge to understanding. We seek to build up a Christian community that embodies the diversity of the kingdom of God as reflected in Revelation 7:9.
On this 4-day bus trip, participants will travel to sites of cultural significance and historical and present-day racial injustice, and we will witness a sampling of Christian ministries living out the Kingdom of God with justice. Through films, tours, prayer, and partner and large-group discussion, the Journey to Mosaic will open doors to a powerful journey of spiritual transformation.
