Mystery and Transformation

The journey continues! From our 2015 assembly we move from meeting the thirsts of the world through the springs of the Great Deep bursting forth, those waters of life flowing in and through us, to living the mystery of transformation -- our 2016 theme. Those waters meeting the thirsts of our world took the shape of a multitude of works, services to the world through our conference’s central office, and through the regions’ individual members.

Winter 2016: Living in Communion

$5.00

This issue of Occasional Papers explores the period in religious life as one rich with potential for deep transformation.

Such losses can become obstacles to the ability to re-imagine religious life for these times and the times ahead.
