Amidst the Powers – A Benediction

On Saturday, we all participated in the Evolving Church: Amidst the Powers confrerence put on by our friends and co-conspirators at Epiphaneia. From start to finish it was a good day of discussion, keynote addresses and connecting with many we’d not seen in a long time – or hadn’t met until Saturday.

The keynote addresses from Walter Wink, Stanley Hauerwas and Marva Dawn all challenged us to live our faith personally and corporately in the midst of a world where the powers are simultaneously good, fallen, and being redeemed.

At day’s end, the empire remixed team had the honour of leading the conference in a closing benediction and commissioning. We’ve posted both the powerpoint slides and the full text version of the benediction in our Resources section.
