228th Convention of the Diocese of South Carolina
The 228th Convention of the Diocese of South Carolina will be held March 15-16, 2019 at Saint James Church, Charleston
St. James Church is located at 1872 Camp Road, Charleston SC
Friday, March 15, 10:30 am-12 noon
Romans 12:13 tells us to “take every opportunity to open our life and home to others.”
What if Jesus meant that we should love our actual neighbors?
When Jesus was asked to sum up everything into one command, he said to love God with everything we have and to love our neighbors as ourselves. Most of us have turned this simple idea of loving our neighbors into a nice saying, putting it on bumper stickers and refrigerator magnets and then going on with our lives without actually putting it into practice.
What would happen if every follower of Jesus took the Great Commandment literally? Is it possible that the solution to our society’s biggest issues has been right under our noses for the past two thousand years?
Pastor Dave Runyon will be sharing his own testimony of how that idea of neighboring impacted his own walk with the Lord, and re-doubled his efforts to share what the Lord put on his heart with church and community leaders all across the country.
Join us at St. James, and spend the morning listening and praying about how to impact your street, block, neighborhood and community with the love of Jesus Christ.
