Join us for…

We had significant difficulty with the limited internet connection in Salina, Kansas. We did the best we could within the limitations we encountered, but we know that the quality of the webcast suffered occasionally. Thank you for your patience.
A collaboration of Bethany Theological Seminary's Electronic Communications and the Church of the Brethren Transforming Practices, Congregational Life Ministries, make it possible for sessions of the Western Plains Gathering V available to be viewed over the internet.
The Gathering, held October 23-25, 2009, at the Webster Conference Center, Salina, Kansas.
