Notes to Pastors

Christian Ministry in a Red & Blue World
Politics pits people against each other – even Christians against Christians. Should Christians be involved in politics? Would Jesus belong to a political party? Can we talk with each another (and listen!) when we disagree? Come to Hesston College, October 19 – 21 for “Christian Ministry in a Red and Blue World.” Greg Boyd (well known speaker and author of the New York Times Best seller The Myth of a Christian Nation), John D. Roth (Goshen College professor and popular speaker) and a host of workshop presenters will lead us in our conversation. Check the link on the Hesston College website (www.hesston.edu) to register.
