“Join us for an engaging conversation on Core Conviction #2 as outlined in ‘The Naked Anabaptist’ by Stuart Murray Williams,” said an announcement of the webinar. “Core Conviction #2 highlights that Jesus is the focal point of God’s revelation. Committed to a Jesus-centered approach to the Bible and community of faith, we read the Bible to discern and apply its implications for discipleship.”

The conversation and reflection will focus on the following questions: What does Jesus as the focal point of God’s revelation mean for us today? What is its practice in everyday life, faith, and community?
