A chance to discuss the topics from the morning sessions in greater depth with our guest speaker.

Consider prayer as a basic spiritual practice with a focus on prayer as participation in the reign of Christ – through thanksgiving, confession and discernment.

Beth Stovell – For God So Loved the World: Reflecting God’s Love for the Other in our Everyday Lives
(Room L2084)

Explore how we may live out a reflection of God’s extravagant love for the other––the lost, the lonely, the broken, and the poor––in practical ways in our everyday lives.

Darren Dyck and Ryan Wilkinson – Ancient Christian Holiness: Augustine and his Contemporaries on Humanity and Sanctification
(Room A2210)

How does your Theology of Humanity shape your practice of holiness? Come hear different answers to this question from Augustine and his contemporaries.

Rob Snow - Purity and Power: Living life with the Holy Spirit
(Room A2212)

Explore the ways in which God the Spirit transforms our hearts and minds and the practical ways that this can happen in our daily lives.

Matthew Morris -  Loving Nature = Loving My Neighbour = Loving God
(Room A2141)

If "this world is not my home, I'm just passing through", then is there any reason for a Christian to do something about environmental destruction? Bring your bibles as we explore some key creation passages together, and re-discover the call to steward God's good creation faithfully.
