Mission in the margins

Session date: Thursday 7th August 2014 Session time: 11:45 am - 12:45 pm Session location: Registration Tent Session track

The seminar will focus on ‘the marginalised’ and highlight God’s heart for those on the outside, the least among us. We think of the poor and those with disabilities in countries far away and at home. Exploring how God’s message of love gains special significance when it is effectively communicated to people who have faced pronounced stigma and rejection.
