Lecture at Wellsboro Bible Church.
Come hear me speak on how we can find faith in the fog of suffering.
I am pleased to announce that I have been asked to bring a lecture to the congregation of Wellsboro Bible Church, in Wellsboro, Pennsylvania, as part of their Sunday Night Theology initiative. On Sunday, March 5, at 6 PM, I will be presenting an exegetical lecture based upon selections from Jeremiah’s prophecy, entitled, “Finding Faith in the Fog of Suffering: The Ballad of Baruch and the Certainty of God’s Promises over the False Hope of Our Own Predictions.”
If you are unfamiliar with the story of Baruch, the assistant to the prophet Jeremiah, you’re in for a treat, as the biblical account of Baruch’s weebly-wobbly faith is, perhaps, one of the more germane narratives in the Old Testament. Through this address, Lord willing, you will be enriched and encouraged through the wisdom of God’s Word which allows us to endure life’s upheaval in the assurance of his presence. You will find some of these same themes developed in my upcoming book, Finding God in the Darkness: Hopeful Reflections from the Pits of Depression, Despair, and Disappointment, which is set to be released in July 2023 by 1517 Publishing.
If you’re nearby, I hope you’ll make your plans to attend this night of theology and fellowship. Refreshments will be provided following the lecture. Wellsboro Bible Church is located at 12880 Route 6, Wellsboro, PA 16901. I look forward to seeing you.
Grace and peace.
Very cool. Shame Pennsylvania is too far away for us. Jeremiah was the first 'saint' who was really real to me in a human way, the realization of the ordinary humanity of such a great prophet is a huge part of my life and talking about a very human Baruch sounds very helpful. I'm confident it will go well and be a blessing to many.
