IDF News 2007
Rev. Charles Bayer came to speak at IDF for two events on March 28-29, 2007.
On March 28, he spoke to the local community in a talk entitled, "Bring Them To Justice.
On March 29, he gave a workshop for clergy and lay leaders entitled, "Reclaiming The Prophetic Vision."
Charles Bayer, Director of Progressive Christians United of Inland Valley area of Los Angles, California, presented a challenge to the Illinois Disciple Foundation when he was here in late March.
Rev. Bayer is a minister of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and has been a leader of the denomination in the field of political and social concerns area.
He was the primary mover behind the creation of the Disciples Justice Action Network, a national justice action network for the Disciples of Christ.
The challenge presented to the IDF
was that as a ministry on the campus of the University of Illinois
, Champaign-Urbana, we should identify what students are interested in and reach them regarding those interests from a Christian Faith perspective.
cited the example of what IDF
has done regarding the "Anti- Chief" issue as a racism issue and how that is a Christian moral issue.
Just as congregations today must find new forms of ministry and new mission emphases, so must IDF
identify new ways to minister to students of the University community.
Much of the challenge also is related to how the IDF
can fund its ministry and mission with the lack of funding coming from other church institutions today.
also indicated that we must find ways to put emphasis on the theological and pastoral care issues and less on administrative and organizational efforts.
We must be clear on our priorities as a mission and ministry in this student oriented community.
"The gospel," said Bayer
, "is not just social action, but is about transformation of lives.
