Brothers and Sisters, Strangers No More. This year’s theme stresses the importance of our relationship with God and others. Love of God and love of neighbor is at the heart of the Ten Commandments. Bishop Cheri will inspire and encourage us as disciples to not only reflect on our current relationships but the obligation we have to one another united in Christ. OBC_Annual_Retreat_2017
