ICT and The Morning Star Institute

ICT and The Morning Star Institute announced their partnership on a Wednesday broadcast, "Our Visions: The Next 500 Years - 30 Years & Counting," a panel conversation taking place during Native American Heritage Month, over what is known as the Thanksgiving holiday. 

This broadcast will include a panel of participants from a 1992 effort that decided to host an event to talk with each other, not about Columbus or the past 500 years, but who would attempt to envision the next 500 years and share prophecies and instructions on being in this world. The outcome of this convening was the Statement of Vision Toward the Next 500 Years.
