October 24-25, 2013 | Gilbertsville, KY
Kentucky church leaders, both lay and clergy, are warmly invited to come together October 24-25 for the 2013 annual event of the Kentucky Council of Churches. We will explore Civil Dialogue through the biblical theme, "Instead, speak the truth in love" (Ephesians 4:15). The location is Kentucky Dam Village Park in Gilbertsville, situated on a beautiful lake in western Kentucky.
Our keynote speakers will be Ms. Renee Shaw of Kentucky Educational Television, and Dr. Kathryn Johnson of Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. Our workshops will cover a range of important topics such as skills for dialogue, ecumenical dialogue, conversations with Muslims, the role of social media, the experience of "The Moral Side of the News," and the restorative justice movement's use of dialogue in situations between victims and offenders. Our worship will feature leaders who serve Western Kentucky churches.
