Sunstone Symposium Germany 2017 “Here I Stand” – 500 Years of Reformation:

The mission of the Sunstone Europe Symposium 2017 is to be a forum of thought and experience within the Restoration movement by focusing on the various impacts of the Reformation on the Restoration.
During this conference we wish to explore the diverse Protestant heritages of the Restoration and how the various Restoration denominations deal with those heritages.
As both the Reformation as well as the Restoration hold rich meaning to inform the individual faith journey, this Sunstone conference will also be an opportunity for healing through discussion and the building of places for dialogue related to the topics of grace, peace and justice.
