If you are in Germany then you might be joining the 100,000+ people in Hamburg for Kirchentag 2013 (Church Day) on May 1-5.
If you make it to my session, please say hello afterwards.
The Kirchentag folk do an absolutely incredible job of organizing and hosting a massive scale festival – the best organized I have ever seen – and they invited me to teach over a year ago. Here is the info they sent me.
Information about your Bible study at the 34th German Protestant Kirchentag from 1st to 5th May 2013 in Hamburg
Dear Mr. Jones,
“As much as you need” – is the theme for the 34th German Protestant Kirchentag. Meanwhile there are tens of thousands of people who have received a program booklet and discovered that you are holding a Bible study.
Your Bible study will take place at the St. Pauluskirche (Heimfeld), Petersweg 1, Hamburg (758 / AA1)on Saturday the 4th of May 2013, from 9.30 to 10.30 am.
You will be welcomed and introduced. Furthermore, your Bible study will be accompanied by the gospel choir Schacht-Audorf.
The topic of Kirchentag 2013 is “As much as you need”, with reference to the manna from heaven that sustained God’s people in the desert. My teaching will add the miracle of the Feeding of the Five Thousand (John 6) to the mix and will focus on abundance and poverty, generosity and equitable distribution, sustainability, God’s provision and His plan to use his people to solve the global challenge of hunger. Hope you can make it.
Hey – this sounds good. Can you put a summary on your blog??
I hope you see this message! It is the only way I have to contact you.
My name is Sheila Brain and I have been invited by the Kirchentag to introduce and welcome you for your bible study. I am from GB and a member of the Kirchentag International Committee.
