23rd ANNUAL CHURCH RETREAT
With Reverend James Calvin Davis
SEPTEMBER 14 & 15
BONCLARKEN IN FLAT ROCK, NC
Take a break and enjoy the cool mountain air, good food and wonderful time with old friends and new as we welcome the Reverend James Calvin Davis, Professor of Ethics and Christian Studies at Middlebury College in Vermont. Rev. Davis is the author of Forbearance: A Theological Ethic for a Disagreeable Church. An expert in the role of religion in American Democratic life, past and present, he writes widely about the ways Christianity in particular has contributed (positively and negatively) to American debates over economic equality, human rights, health care, education, justified violence and religious freedom. We look forward to hearing from James during three sessions:
Session One Saturday: Reforming Friendship
Session Two Saturday: Church as a Community of Friends
Session Three Sunday: Friendship as Christian Witness
Sunday Worship: "A Time for Communities of Character"
