Report from Rochester
post date: March 5, 2011
Pastor Viola envisioned a conference where evangelical leaders from many backgrounds could come together for three days of spiritual refreshment. Using worship leaders from Koinonia Fellowship, and with all the speakers (except for me) from local congregations, the different sessions explored the seven-fold basis of unity in Ephesians 4:4-6.
I spoke on the call to Christian love from 1 Corinthians 13. It has been a wonderful experience to see pastors from the inner city fellowship with men from the suburbs and to see a pastor of a charismatic bent enjoy a meal with a brother who is more Reformed in his theology.
I commented in one message that we need “John 17” conferences in many cities. Certainly it’s a good thing when brethren dwell together in unity (Psalm 133:1). We had a little taste of that this weekend in Rochester. I hope it spreads across the country.
