Registration is now open for the fifth annual Reconcilers Weekend September 16-17, 2011, hosted by the Duke Center for Reconciliation, featuring Virgilio Elizondo and Kit Danley.

FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS ©2000 by John August Swanson Serigraph 30 ¾” x 24” www.JohnAugustSwanson.comAt this weekend conference, The Future is Mestizo: Communities of New Creation at the Borders of Separation, co-sponsored by the Hispanic House of Studies, participants will have the opportunity to discover what it means to follow a Savior who was considered a child of an unknown father and who broke down ethnic and cultural boundaries. Congregational leaders, seminarians, and all who love the church are invited to explore how this mixed-heritage mestizo Jesus is calling us into a new human family based on love of God and love of neighbor.

Father Virgilio Elizondo, hailed by Time Magazine as “the father of U.S. Latino religious thought,” and Kit Danley, founder and president of Neighborhood Ministries in Phoenix, will speak at the event, which will include lectures, worship, guided discussion groups, and a group dinner.

A discounted rate is available for registration before September 2, and scholarship applications are being accepted for participants who have financial need and are actively involved in ministry.

The event will be held in both Spanish and English, with opportunities for bilingual conversation. Learn more and register for Reconcilers Weekend online.
