Fear Not: God's Love in an Anxious Age

This year's Christian Unity Gathering will focus on the theme "Fear Not: God's Love in an Anxious Age". We are reminded in 1 John 4:16-21 that "perfect love casts out all fear."

During our time together, we will explore what it means to be a people who show God's love in a time where fear defines the lives of our communities, our political discourse, and our nation. Particular focus will be how we can work against the fear we find in the mass incarceration of and violence against communities of color and hateful actions and speech against our brothers and sisters of other faiths.


Central to our time together will be face to face meetings of our Convening Tables and Governing Board. Register now to get the discounted rate.

This year's event will be held at the Doubletree Baltimore Washington International Airport. This location has easy access either by air to BWI Airport or by Amtrak to the BWI Airport Rail Station. The hotel provides free shuttle service from both the airport and the train station.

More information about location, schedule, and other details will be forthcoming.  Save by registering now!
