The Pre-gathering in the Rayburn Building sets the tone for the CRNDP ... even though in past years there has been great flow of "His" presence and unity. This year the Pre-gathering went to another level/a higher plane. The purpose was trailblazing -- pioneering - unique - timely.

Purpose (Bridge Builders)

In order to be bridge builders, followers of Jesus must not be afraid of each others' questions; nor can we be afraid to ask our own questions. CRNDP's Pre-gathering created a safe, non- judgmental time for honest dialogue/conversation among those present.

Worship

Vinesong, based in England - Director/Composer, John Watson

"With a Little Love" (set the tone and amplified the purpose) - Persons passing through the corridors were captivated by the words and the melodious harmony of Vinesong - may the words be the prayer of your heart!!!

Lyrics: With a little love, we can make the world much brighter ... show someone we care ... lead the world to Jesus ... show someone the way ... we are His body here ... we have His life to share ... give His spirit freedom ... show someone you care

Comments from Pre-Gathering Participants

Innovative ... interactive panel discussion, with Dr. David Anderson, presiding, was outstanding.

Building bridges ... strengthening understanding how to relate to believers of a different ethnicity, denomination and nation.

Keeping the spirit of unity in bond of peace.

Words of Wisdom!!! (Sampling)

  • Comprehension begins with communication.
  • Why can't we get along. We were all created by a wise God ... with purpose - let's submit to "His" choice in creating our distinctiveness.
  • We do not have to look alike ... think alike ... act alike (cultural similarities) ... to love one another.
  • Compassion, understanding, patience, sensitivity, etc. are ingredients for reconciliation and ultimately healing stereotypes and misconceptions.
  • What if people do not want to reconcile? -- You be the imitator of Christ and do not let their actions influence your reactions - Model being a reconciler.
  • Truth must be brought with Godly motives and attitudes for others to receive biblical truths that are revelatory to you.
  • We must invite conversation and dialogue and not impose it upon others.
  • Dr. King would say today, if he were to speak, where are the dreamers?
