New heaven, new earth: anarchism and Christianity beyond empire

A conference on August 14 & 15, 2009

Caritas Village
2509 Harvard Avenue,
Memphis, TN 38112

This year’s 2009 anarchism and Christianity conference in the US aims to be a time to think about the possibilities for the world to come. The speakers and the workshops will not only provide a much needed reality check regarding the financial and ecological crises we face, but also point to signs of faithfulness and hope. We want to see the current challenges as an opportunity for creativity, for alternative living, for radical sharing, for faithfulness, for a new way of being. We are living in a karios moment that will either break us or compel us to finally strive for a sane way of life.

The questions we face at this pivotal time of global turmoil is not if our human empires will fall apart, but when they will fall and how will we face it? We hope you will join the conversation.
