#CTTalks 5: Worldwide Nature — Structure


Coming in March: 
Human sexuality


Continuing the conversation around key topics related to General Conference 2016, The Connectional Table begins a month-long series on Vital Congregations as part of the #CTTalks online forum. 

Beginning Tuesday, February 2, 2016, a video will be posted each week that examines our ecclesiology, our theology, and our missiology in a worldwide context.

Connectional Table board members Benedita Penicela (Mozambique), Fred Brewington (Northeast Jurisdiction), and Ole Birch (Denmark) discuss legislation that proposes a process for structuring and aligning ourselves as a worldwide connection. 

The Connectional Table invites anyone who is interested in the topic to participate via Twitter by using the hashtag #CTTalks.
