‘Resilience, Resistance and Persistence’

The National Council of Churches (NCC) will hold its 2017 Christian Unity Gathering on Nov. 8–9 at the Sheraton Hotel in Silver Spring, Maryland, just outside Washington, D.C. This year’s theme is “Resilience, Resistance and Persistence.” In many ways, the world has changed since last year’s gathering. In other ways, the same challenges face us as before. Still, the central question is: What does it mean to live as a follower of Jesus today?
