Chosen People: Called to Proclaim.

Monday, 29th August to Saturday 3rd September, 2016 - Houston, Texas, USA.

The theme for the 13th World Assembly, 2016, of the World Federation of Methodist and Uniting Church Women Assembly is “CHOSEN PEOPLE: CALLED TO PROCLAIM” and is based on the Good News translation of 1 Peter 2: 9 & 10.

9 But you are the chosen race, the King’s priests, the holy nation, God’s own people, chosen to proclaim the wonderful acts of God, who called you out of darkness into his own marvellous light.10 At one time you were not God’s people, but now you are his people; at one time you did not know God’s mercy, but now you have received his mercy.

1 Peter 2: 9-10 (Good News Bible)

For the past 2 quinquenniums the Federation has worked very hard on the Millennium Development Goals. This has given us great opportunity to work out the social justice component of our Wesleyan tradition. With this new theme there is opportunity to bring in a balance of Wesleyan holiness and social concern.

We will remember who we are.

We will develop our relationship with Christ.

Then we will be equipped to share Christ with others as we proclaim his love through worship, social action, and relationships.

These will be the 3 areas we will explore through workshops at the Assembly.
