Another great conference at Launde Abbey, with Sophie Jelley as speaker, and in the company of AWESOME ‘good women’!
It’s hard to sum up what you missed if you could not make it this year. It was a tough brief, ‘Leading in a Broken Church’. Sophie’s talks focused on three words beginning with ‘C’:
- Compassion: Jesus’ mandate to bind up the broken hearted – and our mandate too.
- Courage: Being brave! And ‘remaining’ in Christ (John 15:4)
- Call: Going wherever God sends! The call to follow Jesus, and the call to deeper faith, taking risks and playing our part.
Also: much fun, good food, fellowship, fresh air (for the walkers), pampering, purchasing (books, cards and clerical shirts) – and sleep.
And now it’s time to put next year’s date in the diary:
AWESOME Away: resource, restore, re-set
2-4th November 2020 at Launde Abbey, Leicestershire
Speaker to be announced. Save the date and come next year!
