Monday 9th-Friday 13th August 2021
As usual, the week will be packed full of interesting and uplifting seminars for people of all ages, not forgetting the morning and evening events.
Here is just a flavour what’s in store.
Good Grief: Living with sorrow and loss with Malcolm Duncan
Grief does not stop simply because we are followers of Christ. In this seminar, Malcolm Duncan will explore some of the Biblical motifs around grief, loss and mourning and unpack some of his own journey through sorrow and loss. Amongst other things, we will think about what it means to walk through the valley of the shadow of death, how we learn to change our grip as we travel through loss, how God can use shadows and darkness as places of encounter, what it means to live with the minor key of loss, and what lessons we can learn from the story of the resurrection of Lazarus.
Listening to God with John-Mark Mullan
Most of us would love to hear God speak into our lives, personally and directly, with freshness and power. But we worry about how we can be sure we are hearing God’s voice, and not just our own thoughts (or the voice of the enemy). We wonder about the relationship between the Bible and other ways God might speak. This seminar will explore some key questions about how God speaks today, and how we can have confidence in learning to recognise his voice.
Proclaiming Peace in Grace and Truth with Paul Coulter
The gospel of peace comes to people who are at war with God. But contemporary people don’t think they’re God’s enemies, while our proclamations of peace have too often sounded like declarations of war. In this cultural moment, when Christians often feel like they’re on the wrong side of history, we need to recommit to boldness and gentleness with integrity of lives and words in our defence of the gospel. In this seminar we will learn from the Lord Jesus and the apostles Peter and Paul how we can stand firm in both God’s truth and his grace as we share the gospel of peace
