Christian Citizenship Seminar Scheduled by Witness/Washington Office

The Brethren Witness/Washington Office has announced an Adult Christian Citizenship Seminar to be held May 6-11 in New York City and Washington, D.C., on the theme, “Healthcare for a Hurting World.” The event for adults is a counterpart to the Christian Citizenship Seminar offered for high school-age youth.

“Plan now to join as we explore the injustices of inadequate healthcare worldwide, and how a flawed healthcare system in the United States affects us all,” the office said in its January 2006 Witness to Washington newsletter.

Participants will arrive in New York on Saturday, May 6, where they will hear speakers, participate in worship, and visit the United Nations. On Tuesday, May 9, the group will travel to Washington, D.C., where they will meet with healthcare experts, share in sessions, sightsee, and participate in direct advocacy on Capitol Hill.

Cost is $350. To register call 800-785-3246. For more information about the Brethren Witness/Washington Office see
