INDIANAPOLIS – As plans commence for the 2011 General Assembly of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Nashville, Disciples are invited to participate in the "Tell it!" Essay Invitational.
Respondents may contribute up to 450 words in response to the question: "Where do you see God at work among Disciples, moving for wholeness in a fragmented world?"
The invitational is open to ALL ages, according to Patricia Case, Director of Program and Marketing of the General Assembly.
"Tell it!" is the Assembly theme, based on Deuteronomy 6:1-12, which is part of Moses’ last sermon to the Hebrew people before they cross into the Holy Land.
