Craigville Theological Colloquy
Immigrants, Refugees, and the Church
Monday-Friday, July 9-13, 2018
// Come back soon (about March 1) and we should have registration enabled. //
You may also wish to browse the other pages on our web site. You can read about our past gatherings (still being updated), discover where the Craigville Retreat Center is located (outer Cape Cod in Centerville), and enjoy pictures of the area and past gatherings.
You can also read about the Christian Camp Meeting Association (CCMA), the long-time owner and steward of the retreat center here in Craigville and the colloquy’s sponsoring body. And you can read about United Camps, Conferences, and Retreats (UCCR), the management company engaged by CCMA to manage the retreat center.
The year’s colloquy will be the 35th colloquy for which many folk from various faiths and faith journeys have gathered for a time of discussion, reflection, challenge, worship, and prayer. We hope you find the topic and description interesting and will consider joining us. The roots of the Colloquy grew from efforts of leaders and thinkers within the United Church of Christ. Today the leadership, attendees, and speakers are broadly representative of Christ’s Church.
In 2018, the nation is in the midst of multiple and engaging discussions about the stranger among us. Scripture invites to recognize that all people, all of God’s children, are or were once strangers within recent history (400 years or so – discounting for true natives of course).
How ought the Church in the 21st century speak on the topic of immigrants and/or refugees? What can people, congregations, or communities do with regard to these urgent questions? These and many more questions will arise. Join us!!
