Desiring God’s conference on disability is only six months away!
Yes, I know, the entire summer is still before us. But I also know it will take time for some of you to convince your church leadership that this conference is for them as well.
And this may sound funny since I attend and am very grateful for my ‘big’ church, but I’m REALLY praying for many of two particular kinds of pastors to attend: pastors from small churches, and pastor/fathers of disabled children. One of my favorite times of year is the annual Desiring God Conference for Pastors because I get to see and spend some time with pastors who are on the front lines, often by themselves (with their wives), doing some great and hard work. I love those men.
And the ones living in the dual fishbowls of the pastorate and raising a child with a disability – they are my heroes.
On Wednesday the Desiring God team let me post six reasons why pastors should attend at the Desiring God blog. Please use these if you find them useful. Even better, add your own reasons in the comments below!
Let’s make this conference look so attractive and enriching for church leaders to attend that suddenly our little niche issue of disability doesn’t feel so niche after all.
God will get the glory, and we will get the joy!
