Personal Note From the Editor:
From June 24th-28th, I will be joining other Christians from around the US for the inaugural conference of “The Initiative.” This is a newly formed community of Christians from many church traditions. The Initiative was begun by the leadership team of the ACT3 Network in 2016-17, based on the belief that relational friendship is critical to true community (missional-ecumenism). We are not gathering for an argument or a fight about explosive and debatable issues. We believe the love of Christ is strong enough to call all Christians to pray and serve together (John 13:34; 15:12-18; 17:21-24). We are gathering to build friendships rooted in reconciling love. Our group is asking your prayers that our initial gathering will be fruitful and productive. Thank you.
