Imagine seeing thousands of women united again in one place and time where hope is in the air. Women ready to heal, ready to celebrate and ready to act. Here is what to expect at Assembly:
Ubuntu is a unique word, a concept, a worldview, which captures the very essence of what it is to be human. A Zulu phrase, Umuntu ngumuntu ngabantu, says, “I am only because we are, and since we are, therefore I am.” It recognizes each human being as part of a community. Above all, it is a gathering of God’s people to celebrate God-with-us, Immanuel, who moves us to action on behalf of our neighbor. Ubuntu is a celebration of being in community with people as mission.
Ubuntu Day of Service, a pre-conference experience on Thursday, May 19, is designed to celebrate mission as relational. Field trips offer opportunities to experience how communities are impacted by persons and systems and how people are making a difference.
