1998 Religious Education Congress Theme:

"Imaging Love: Empowering Lives"

1998.jpg (3563 bytes)The theme "Imaging Love: Empowering Lives" invites us to open up our hearts to experience the pouring out of God's outrageous, enduring, persistent, generous love ... a love that affirms, heals, challenges and gives meaning to our lives and to our ministry.

Standing in the presence of this enduring love "we, through the power of the Holy Spirit," are changed into mirror images of God. We become like God in the values that we choose to live by, in our attitude toward others, in our commitment to be at the service of the brother and sister and in our openness to forgive and to reconcile. We indeed put on the mind of Christ and live His vision.

Out of this freeing, life-giving stance, we go forth in ministry to empower others to stand tall, to embrace a Gospel vision of life, to believe in God, to believe in themselves. This belief comes from a conviction that God's love powerful in us transforms, renews and "flows from you to me" as the poet Brendan Kenneally so beautifully writes, "Heaven's brightness flows from you to me and on behalf of God, I say that's right."
