Every relationship, even difficult ones, are a gift of God’s grace for our growth in the knowledge and likeness of Christ.
Those who attend will receive four free books and conference discounts on hundreds of excellent books in the conference bookstore.
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:
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 …
