We live in a culture that is held captive to a vision of growth: where privilege, entitlement, exploitation and endless accumulation are the norm. But we yearn for a Kingdom culture, where followers of Jesus have been freed to practise Christ’s vision of sufficiency: living in solidarity, humility, justice and equality.
TEAR's “ENOUGH” conference is an opportunity to be uplifted by this vision. To be transformed by a Kingdom culture, and empowered to live it out in today’s empire-ruled culture, through Christian community. Together, we will explore what it means to have had enough (of poverty, injustice and excuses), and what it means to have enough (sufficient for our needs).
Gather, be inspired and empowered to act with our WA TEAR community!
When: Saturday 22 July, 9am-1.30pm (Lunch included) Coffee on Sale from 8am.
Venue: Lifestreams Christian Church South Perth – Cnr Murray St & McNabb Loop, Como, Perth.
