On Mondays we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Convention. We asked our speaker Amy Wicks to share more about what she will be speaking on. Amy will also be running a seminar “A Bird’s Eye View of Romans”.
What are you speaking about at the Scottish Women’s Convention and why?
I’ll be speaking on Romans 8. This is a great chapter of the Bible full of verses that you might be familiar with. When we get to grips with the whole chapter I think we learn some massive truths about the gospel that shape our understanding of what its like being a Christian here and now. It’s a chapter that I hope will shape our expectations for the Christian life in the mess of this world, and help us keep going until the end.
What is the title of your seminar at the Scottish Women’s Convention? What is it about?
We’ll be looking at a Bird’s Eye View of Romans – trying to understand what the book of Romans is about as a whole and why Paul bothered to write it.
Why is this seminar topic important?
When you’re studying any book of the Bible its helpful to think about the message of the whole book, not just the individual chapters or paragraphs. Its especially helpful when it comes to application, helping us to think carefully about how God wants us to change in response to his word. So for the book of Romans, we’re going to be thinking about the purpose of Paul’s letter, and how that helps us to understand and apply each section. But I’m also hoping we’ll pick up some skills for doing the same with other Bible books that we go on to study.
