A brief post that is a recommended read from the national EFCA blog. Its an interview with Greg Strand and Alejandro Mandes who reflects on the national theological conference that took place in Texas earlier this year.
“Racism is man’s gravest threat to man – the maximum of hatred for a minimum of reason.”
Abraham Joshua Heschel
I bow before your holy Temple as I worship. I praise your name for your unfailing love and faithfulness; for your promises are backed by all the honor of your name.
Psalm 138:2 NLT

At the national EFCA blog there was a post that is a follow up to the national theology conference which took place earlier this year. The theme of the conference dealt with the Gospel, compassion and justice. It looked at the issue of immigration and racial issues and how the EFCA should respond. The Wondering Eagle wrote two posts about the conference. “EFCA’s Upcoming Theological Conference: The Gospel, Compassion and Justice. A Review of the Speakers and Some Personal Thoughts” and “EFCA’s Bob Rowley Likes a Deeply Controversial Tweet from President Trump on Twitter. In Light of the Upcoming EFCA Theology Conference Does the EFCA District Superintendent of the Texas and Oklahoma District Comprehend Racism?” I also collected the resources from the conference as well. You can listen to those in, “Resources for EFCA’s Theological Conference: The Gospel, Compassion and Justice.“
