Every day, I am in conversations with people who are struggling to understand God’s truth about disability and what the world considers “biological error.” Many feel isolated and are hungry to connect with others who understand their plight. That’s why I’m so excited about the “The Works of God: God’s Good Design in Disability” Conference.
In just three days, almost 500 people will be gathering for “The Works of God: God’s Good Design in Disability” Conference featuring speakers like Dr. John Piper, Nancy Guthrie and Mark Talbot. My friend Krista Horning, author of Just the Way I Am, will be a special guest sharing her testimony.
I enthusiastically agree with Pastor Paul Martin’s summary of reasons to look forward to this conference:
1. To be reminded that sin and suffering are in the world.
2. To connect with a few choice (friends).
3. To learn how to love my (child) better.
4. To learn how to make our churches a safer refuge for the disabled.
5. To be encouraged.
You can register onsite Thursday morning (or by Tuesday here if you want to get lunch). The entire conference will also be offered LIVE-STREAM at www.desiringgod.org/live beginning at 8:30 a.m. (Central). Get the conference schedule here and listen along with us. Larry and I will be there and are so grateful for these men and women with the vision and resources to make this possible!
