A few weeks ago David Wooten of Embraced By Grace ministries joined us to tell us about this event in Lake Mary on Nov. 5 & 6 at the Westin Lake Mary that will focus on adoption from two directions – vertical in terms of our relationship with God and horizontal in terms of the ministry of adopting orphans into our Christian families.
Here is a portion of the description for the conference web link:
We will hear gifted men exposit the Scriptures concerning how you, your family, and your local church, can embrace this life-changing truth in very practical ways. The speakers will trace the love of God to the adoption of His children. They will also bring out how that love should motivate us to care for the needs of children that do not have loving parents or a family. These teachings on the comfort and hope of adoption will warm your heart and deepen your understanding of what it means to be a part of God’s forever family. Your appreciation for the Christian family and the church will grow as you discover how these divine institutions meet very real needs in practical ways.
Early registration of only $59 ends this Thursday, September 30, and includes two meals AND a special concert by Andrew Peterson.
If you want to learn more about this doctrine of Scripture that John Owen called the fountain privilege of the gospel and/or find out more information about adopting children into your own family, this conference is for you.
Argh! Can’t get the time off work for this. I was looking forward to the teaching. Would have been new and intriguing territory for me. And, of course, Andrew Peterson is well worth the price of admission!
Great 200th blog post, btw.
