Church and Society
 

The Roanoke District Church and Society Committee has as its mission to "help United Methodist churches in Roanoke and the New River Valley incarnate the Gospel in personal, social, and civic righteousness. The Committee will strive to do this by fostering exploration of divergent views on social issues to help strengthen the United Methodist witness in local congregations."   The major event for 2014 will be "Tearing Down the Walls: Ways of Doing Justice" with Shane Claiborne as featured leader on October 24th, 9:00am - 3:15pm.  The major activity during 2013-2014 was an in-depth survey and study of the social outreach activities of United Methodist churches throughout the District.

"Tearing Down the Walls" will be led by Shane Clariborne, a well-known speaker and one of the founders of The Simple Way - a Christian community in Philadelphia that seeks to take seriously some of the radical teachings of Jesus and how these should shape our common life.  Through this event we will seek to understand the meaning of Christian social justice; how we can break down contemporary walls of injustice such as economic inequalities, educational disparities and racial divisions; and how we can build hope and empower persons to overcome walls of separation and engage others on social justice issues.  Participants will have an opportunity to interact with Claiborne, who led the Virginia Conference 5 Talent Academy "Ministry With the Poor" event on February 21st, ask questions, and share concerns, stories and action ideas in small groups.  This will be an intergenerational event. Youth and young adults are therefore encouraged to attend as well as older adults.  This event is sponsored by the Roanoke District Church and Society Committee, in collaboration with the Danville, Lynchburg and Staunton Districts.  Approved for CEU 0.5.   The event will take place at First United Methodist Church, 125 W. Main Street, Salem, VA - 24153.  A special early bird registration fee for adults of $25.00 is available until September 17th, after which the adult registration fee will be $30.00.  Registration for students is $10.00.  Child care provided up through age 6.
