Al Gore, Bill Clinton’s former Vice President, talked about the environment, while Hillary Clinton, former Secretary of State and Bill’s wife, discussed children’s welfare. Other guests included U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley, and influential business leaders, actors like Orlando Bloom, Matt Damon, and Ashley Judd, and philanthropists.

We must do it together as one human family.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
