Resources for One-Anothering the Word

If you have relationships or know someone who does, then keep reading.

Paul Tripp and Timothy Lane have teamed up on a number of writing projects over the years, including How People Change and Relationships: A Mess Worth Making. Earlier this spring, Tripp and Lane were together in Albuquerque along with 700 attendees to address the theme “One-Anothering the Word” at Clarus ’13, The Gospel Coalition’s Southwest Regional Conference hosted by Desert Springs Church.

These men have thought carefully and deeply from the Bible about how our broken relationships can be redeemed, and about how God actually uses our relationships with “one another” to conform us into the image of his Son. Every relationship, even difficult ones, are a gift of God’s grace for our growth in the knowledge and likeness of Christ.

In addition to a panel discussion hosted by Ryan Kelly (audiovideoblog recap), each of the men spoke three times. Below you’ll find a round up of their talks, including links to audio, video, and blog summaries, followed by session videos in the order they were delivered. Photos from the conference are available at the TGC Albuquerque Facebook page.

Clarus 2010

We want to make you aware of an excellent conference taking place at Desert Springs Church in Albuquerque, NM. It’s called Clarus (Latin meaning ‘clear,’ ‘bright,’ ‘radiant’). Here’s the invitation to this year’s conference from Pastor Ryan Kelly:

This year we are privileged to have Dr. Wayne Grudem and Randy Alcorn with us as our speakers.

Our theme for Clarus ’10 is “Between Heaven and Earth.” Our goal with this year’s theme is to look at a few slices of life here on earth as well as what we have to look forward to when Christ returns – topics such as: money, politics, business, suffering, and heaven.

Check out the schedule page to see how these issues will get fleshed out in the specific talks. We are convinced that these themes deserve our thought and prayer, and that they will have many applications in our daily life.

We, not-yet-glorified saints, are too often content to simply absorb the attitudes of the world around us concerning these “everyday issues.” We hope that this conference will help to cast a new vision so that these subjects don’t seem dull and mundane, but become another arena for worship so that “whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, you do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31).

It is our prayer that God would be glorified to use the fellowship, prayer, singing, and instruction of Clarus ’10 in your life. We hope you’ll make plans to join us April 30 – May 2.

For His Grace and Glory,
Ryan Kelly
