Theme:  Living the Kin-dom

Exploring the Lord’s Prayer as a Spiritual Practice for Social Transformation. 

Continuing the Overall Theme:

 Who Can We be Together? Building Communities of Hope and Joy

This year’s study for Mission U include the ways Jesus preached and ministered to the kin-dom around him.  Jesus said those inheriting the coming and future kingdom were those pushed outside the hierarchies of belonging – the hungry, the stranger, and the prisoner.  The Lord’s prayer speaks well to the second year of the curricula. We will focus on the invitation to posture our lives and transform ourselves in ways that bring us proximity to the kin-dom.
 Thursday - Saturday July 13-15
 Friday-Sunday July 28-30.
 Mission u will be virtual again this year.  There is no cost.
 There are two study leaders for each session.  You can actually register for both week-ends and hear the same lessons from a different perspective.
