Communities of Shalom Training. As another outgrowth of our Lenten study, those gathered wanted to learn more about how to transform some of the realitiesin our community through Christian, asset-based community building. “Shalom Zones” (as they are called) began as a response to the conditions that impelled the Los Angeles rioting in 1992 and the aftermath that followed. The General Conference of our church created the initiative based on the following principles, which are still very relevant in our area today.
- Renewing the spirit of God in communities and congregations
- Developing the prosperity and economies of communities
- Strengthening relationships among neighbors
- Improving community health care and coordination of services
There will be five (5) other sessions over the next six months with those dates to be announced in the future. The goal is to build teams which will be equipped to be catalysts for change in the name of Jesus! I hope you will join us — it’s a different kind of mission work.
