Ancient Scripture, Future Church: The Choices We Make and the God We Serve

Life is about choices. In the book of Deuteronomy, Israel stands at a crossroads where they can choose death and destruction or life and prosperity. Like Israel, we choose for ourselves whom we will serve. We can turn away and bow to other, false gods or we can choose to follow the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, the one true God of forgiveness, mercy, and love.

ACU Summit 2017“Ancient Scripture, Future Church: The Choices We Make and the God We Serve,” will focus on Deuteronomy, the ways this ancient text informs the future of the church, and the choices we make as we strive to serve God. We invite you to join us from September 17-20 as we reflect upon the future of the church in light of these scriptures. Please join us for classes that speak to your interests and congregational needs, listen to speakers focus on Deuteronomy, and partake in fellowship and conversation with others who have chosen to follow after God.

May we all choose life.

CHARIS hosts conversations of and about Churches of Christ. The website is intended to support education for Christian life and community through contemporary discussions and historical sources that variously witness to the gifts (“charis”) of God among Churches of Christ, especially their plea for visible unity among Christians through ongoing renewal and restoration of Scriptural beliefs and practices among God’s people.

The CHARIS website is supported by Abilene Christian University (Abilene, TX, USA), the Center for Heritage and Renewal in Spirituality (CHARIS) at ACU. The purpose of CHARIS at ACU is to seek God’s blessings for a healthy relationship between the Christian college/university – its faculty, staff, and students – and the church heritage that gives identity and meaning to such a school. This underlying concern for Christian colleges/universities, and their relationship to the churches, is reflected in the form and content of the CHARIS website.
