Each fall, the Great Plains Mercy & Justice Team invites you to a day of engaging with different issues to better equip us as Christ’s followers to transform the world.

This year’s event, “For the Transformation of the World – The role of the church in a politically/racially divided nation,” is from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, at Saint Mark United Methodist Church, 1525 N. Lorraine Ave., Wichita.

The featured speaker will be Jim Wallis, president and founder of Sojourners in Washington D.C., a non-profit faith-based organization, network and movement whose mission statement calls for “putting faith into action for social justice.” Wallis is also a best-selling author, public theologian, national preacher, social activist and international commentator on ethics and public life. Books by Wallis include “America’s Original Sin: Racism, White Privilege and the Bridge to a New America,” “The (Un)common Good,” “God’s Politics” and “The Great Awakening.”

The event is free, but registration is requested.

If you travel from further away and mileage costs are a concern, please contact the Rev. Kalaba Chali atkchali@greatplainsumc.org or 316-684-0266.
