The annual Wesley Theology Day was held yesterday at a new venue for the event -- the Felsőerdősor Methodist Church located in central Pest, which this year is celebrating its 100th anniversary in that location. The theme for this year's program was "shalom" and a wide variety of speakers addressed this important subject.
The new Methodist superintendent, Dr. László Khaled, was the host for the day. Other speakers included Kata Tar from Jews for Jesus, Dr. Áron Németh from the Reformed Theological College in Debrecen, Gábor T. Szuhánszky from the Wesley Learning Center, and János Szeverényi from the Director of Missions for the Lutheran Church in Hungary. Additional historical presentations were made by former Methodist superintendent Dr. Frigyes Hecker and Methodist historian Dr. Judit Lakatos. Christiane Hecker reported on the good work that Teen Challenge is doing in Budapest.
The Salvation Army brass band and the Jews for Jesus worship team provided music for the day. It was a great day of fellowship and learning together with our brothers and sisters from the Wesleyan Alliance member organizations.
