COUNCIL FOR HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICE MINISTRIES: 75th ANNUAL MEETING
February 28 – March 3, 2013
CHHSM at 75: The Promise of our Passion-Driven Movement
The CHHSM community celebrates 75 years of witness to God’s vision of health and wholeness by reminding ourselves of the promise of our passion-driven movement. That promise is nothing less than God’s eternal vision of a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells (2nd Peter 3:13). This enduring, counter-cultural promise calls us, in the words of our mission statement, to sustain and advance the healing and service ministry of Jesus Christ. Our passion is not about ourselves or our ministries, it is about our calling to point to the new creation and our commitment to making it manifest through our service to others and to one another.
At our 75th Annual Meeting, we will join with the whole United Church of Christ, international partners and CHHSM leaders past and present to recall and honor CHHSM’s legacy and inspire one another in the pursuit of the compelling promise of our movement into the future God holds for our ministry. It will be a time of storytelling, reflection and renewal essential to sustain and advance the healing and service ministry of the church.
