Our 6th National Synergy conference is just around the corner! In less than a month now, we’ll all be in warm, sunny, no-ear muffs, no-snow-boots, no-mittens Orlando again. I must admit, beautiful as winter is in Massachusetts, this sounds great to me!
This year’s theme is “Conflict in The Story—The Shaping of a Leader’s Soul.”
Conflict is an everyday part of all of our lives. Hate it. Avoid it. Shut down when it happens. But none of us can escape it. We face conflict from within, from relationships, circumstances, losses, and the turmoil in our world. Conflict takes us into valleys that slow our pace, that darken and define the landscape of our lives and draw us into soul-shaping struggles with God.
Conflict is where God does some of his deepest work in us. It is also where advocates are born and leaders are forged. God uses our private, localized struggles to make us strong, to sensitize us to the sufferings of others, and to embolden us to move out of our comfort zones to do whatever we can to reach out to others who are hurting, taking the Gospel with us everywhere we go.
If you haven’t registered yet, there’s still time. You can learn more and register here.
If you can’t join us, you can still be involved. We need lots of prayer as we come together, March 5-7. And you can make it possible for someone else to attend. $100 will scholarship one attendee. This is a great opportunity for you to get behind your sisters in Christ in a tangible way. We are trying to raise $2000 in scholarships. To contribute, go here.
See you soon in the Sunshine State!
