“Claim Who We Are in Christ” is the theme for the 2018 edition of WellSprings Journal.
Our theme verse is Haggai 2:3, 5b (NRSV)—“Who is left among you that saw this house in its former glory? How does it look to you now? Is it not in your sight as nothing? . . . My spirit abides among you; do not fear.”
The 2018 edition of the WellSprings Journal offers insights and stories from across the connection that name the reality of humanity’s separation from God’s grace and challenge us to reclaim the prophetic Christian role in society as witnesses to love and shalom.
