2010 World Conference Begins!
The opening ceremony of the Community of Christ 2010 World Conference was spectacular on Saturday night! Rev. Dr. Michael Kinnamon, general secrectary of the National Council of Churches, gave the keynote address. As a way to celebrate the church's 150th anniversary of the reorganization, Joseph Smith III (portrayed by John Horner) stood behind the Plano pulpit and presented the gavel to President Veazey to open the conference.
Sunday brought a moving Communion service with a message from Apostle Bunda Chibwe and on Sunday evening we celebrated with the Asia field as the church celebrated 50 years of ministry in Korea and Japan. President Veazey gave a challenging address that can be viewed and downloaded at
If you couldn't join us in person this week, we hope you will have an opportunity to view a live webcast of the evening worship experiences or check out the online Daily Update featuring sermon texts, video clips, moments in history, daily minutes, photos, and more at Additional updates available on the Community of Christ facebook page.
