Something Worth Being Afraid of

While “fear not” is a repeated refrain throughout scripture, the writer of Hebrews tells us that there is something we should fear: we should fear failing to enter into God’s promised rest. Evidently there are some who claim to be part of the people of God who will fail to enter into the ultimate eternal rest he has offered to all. And then he tells us to do something that sounds counter-intuitive: we should strive to rest. What should this striving look like? What form should it take? As we look back on fifty years of God’s faithfulness to us, Nancy Guthrie will urge us toward proper fear and striving toward the future God has set before us: his rest.

Special Wednesday Offering from CDM
Taste and See Seminar

10:00 – 11:00 am

Location: Renasant Convention Center

Because God Has Spoken

God could have made the world and left us on our own. But he didn’t. Instead, God condescended to speak to us in human language. If we didn’t believe that, there would be no Presbyterian Church in America. So what are the implications of believing that God has spoken? What will it mean for us to hear it, understand it, delight in it, submit to it, know it, teach it, live it, and believe it today and over the next fifty years?  Nancy Guthrie will lead us in exploring together what it will mean for us to be women whose ears are attentive to, and whose lives are shaped by, the living and active Word.
