Subject: Christian Unity Gathering: Major Program Addition!

The National Museum of African American History and Culture Is Added to Program of Christian Unity Gathering
One of the most difficult tickets to obtain in DC, the museum is providing admission for CUG participants for the morning of November 9th.
About the Museum

The newest Smithsonian museum opened September 24, 2016, near the Washington Monument, and has welcomed more than 1 million visitors to date. It is the only national museum devoted exclusively to the documentation of African American life, art, history, and culture.

Collection highlights include Nat Turner’s Bible; an extensive repository of photos and film documenting everyday Black life; a segregation-era Southern Railway car; African-American ephemera examining the Double Victory Military Experience; Michael Jackson’s fedora; and works by prolific artists, such as Charles Alston, Elizabeth Catlett, Romare Bearden, and Henry O. Tanner.

This museum experience will be a powerful experience for everyone.  It will provide the foundation for powerful new programs of the NCC that will be also announced at CUG.

About the Christian Unity Gathering

In many ways, the world has changed since we last gathered. In other ways, the same challenges face us as before. Still, today just as yesterday, the central question is: what does it mean to live as a follower of Jesus today?

Through powerful speakers, seminars, and presentations we will find inspiration to come together as people who are called to bind up wounds, fight injustice, and protect the poor and vulnerable.

Resilience:  How do we grow, adapt, and thrive when we get discouraged?

Resistance: What does it mean to “stand in the way?”

Persistence: Where do we go to find the strength to remain engaged?

Our 2017 Christian Unity Gathering will examine all these questions through our theme, “Resilience, Resistance, and Persistence.” Come and be inspired and equipped for the long journey ahead!
