On Mondays, we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Convention. For the next few weeks, we’ll be telling you a bit more about the range of Seminars that are on offer.
This year we are excited to announce that we will have a seminar stream aimed solely at teenage girls. In this stream, there will be a session in the morning and another in the afternoon. If you are signing up for this stream, please indicate that you are under 18 when purchasing your ticket.
Laura Porteous, from Glasgow, will be leading these seminars and has taken time to tell us more.
What is the title of the teenage stream at the Scottish Women’s Convention?
Lies girls believe and the truth that sets us free. The first seminar will focus on the lie that ‘God’s ways are too restrictive’ and the second seminar will focus on the lie that ‘If I’m not in a relationship or having sex then I’m missing out’.
What is the seminar about?
Seminar 1 – It’s the oldest lie in the book, God is keeping good things from us. We’ll go back and see where it all began and think about how we’re still believing it before turning to the truth that God is abundantly generous and good.
Seminar 2 – In movies, the girl always gets the guy, in our childhood dreams we are always wearing the big white princess dress. We’ve been brought up to think that relationships are the be all and end all. We’ll look at where the bible tell us our worth comes from and remind ourselves of the better story, so much better than a fairytale.
Who is the seminar for?
Any teenage girls who come to the convention! Both seminars will be aimed at S3-S6. For girls prepared to get their noses stuck into their bibles and brains in gear to fight these lies and serious about being changed.
Why is this area important?
We are so surrounded by the world’s mistaken views that we often feel like it’s easier to just give in rather than go against the tide. We need to know and believe God’s truth to start battling the world’s lies so that it becomes our biggest weapon and the air we breathe.
Besides your seminar, what one thing about the Scottish Women’s Convention are you looking forward to and why?
Catching up with rarely seen friends over a cuppa. We’re all busy living our lives in different cities that it’ll be great to spend a day together, in one place where there’s enough time to chat and drink tea!
