Turning the Words of Scripture into the Wings of your Prayers

There’s another great conference to be aware of. Bethlehem Bible Church church bgin West Boylston, MA hosts two conferences every year. (Some of you women may remember when Kim Abendroth spoke at one of CCC’s women’s retreats; Kim’s husband pastors at BBC.) BBC is 2.5 hrs from us.

BBC’s Spring conference features Donald Whitney teaching on praying through Scripture and biblical meditation. The conference is titled, “Turning the Words of Scripture into the Wings of Your Prayers.”

About the conference
In begins on Friday, April 25 at 7pm. It goes through Sunday, April 26 at noon. You wouldn’t have to stay for the whole thing (BBC knows this creates a dilemma for folks outside their own church). You could just go for the Saturday sessions – I did that one year.

The cost is $20 for one person, $30 for two, and $45 for a family. Register from their website. Get a free book if you register by the 15th!

More about Don Whitney
tenquestionsDonald Whitney has written some fantastic books. I have particularly enjoyed Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, Ten Questions to Diagnose Your Spiritual Health, and Spiritual Disciplines within the Church. We have these books in our church library, and we even have a couple of his books on the book table in the church foyer right now.

In the “links” section of our website, we’ve recommended Whitney’s website. It’s called The Center for Biblical Spirituality. Here are a few articles that I’ve found to be helpful:

Also, you can read from a bunch of sample chapters from his books. It’s a great resource!

    Hey Craig, Thanks for letting us know about the conference…and for the link to 10 Questions to Ask at the Start of a New Year… good questions that cause you to pause and consider what might otherwise be just fleeting thoughts.
