The first Bible Exposition focused 1 Peter 1:1-25. Introducing themes of hope, suffering, despair, joy, holiness, and exile, the exposition explored how the power of Christ overcomes all that seeks to alienate and fragment. Our identity in Christ, who chooses and sanctifies his people, is our common identity as God’s Church in God’s world.

Following the Bible Exposition, the conference community met in Bible Study groups. Bible study materials are available as supporting documents.
