2016 Program

The Forum program is highly interactive. Daily rhythms include worship; eating together; sharing of stories in small groups; country groups and issue groups to engage contextual challenges; and final sessions around visioning, collaboration, and “Where do we go from here?”

Highlights include:

  • Four daily movements of morning presentations and interaction to engage a Scriptural framework for reconciliation: new creation, lament, hope, spirituality for the long haul.
  • About half of the participants will be new, about half continuing from previous Forums. This relates to the Forum vision of building a long-term community of Christians committed to pursuing reconciliation in Northeast Asia.
  • Pilgrimage of pain and hope into the Hong Kong context.
  • Ellen Davis, the Dean of Duke Divinity School, will participate and provide a plenary teaching.
