Living a Grace-Full Life
Women's Conference 2015
October 30 - 31, 2015
Westminster Presbyterian Church
Conference auido available Here
When we see grace as more than a pleasant word and watch it morph into a pervasive biblical doctrine, we are ready to understand it as a lifestyle and as the overarching framework within which God relates to us. Tutored by the biblical tenets of grace, we begin to understand our worlds and our hearts differently; hopelessness and hope, dependence and strength, failure and purpose become pairs instead of opposites. We have the opportunity of seeing ourselves and our earthly lives as God sees them.
Join us this October 30 and 31 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, as Barbara Duguid helps to acquaint us with the expansive nature of grace. It will surprise us by pushing into nooks and crannies of our thinking and living that have long needed its overhaul. Elizabeth Groves and Stephanie Hubach will help us see the outworking of grace in areas such as loss, grief, and rebuilding, as well as sacrificial care-giving and a grace-full approach to those who need us. In short, we will see that the grace of our sovereign God toward us, which he enables us to extend to others, is more than amazing…it is indeed extravagant.
