On arrival at the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention everyone will need to sign up for their seminar. To avoid long queues, we’d encourage everyone to have decided beforehand what they’d like to sign up for. Below are the seminar description with links to the post from the seminar leader sharing more about the topic.
Empty cradle and early grave – Miriam Montgomery
The seminar will look at the place of grief and suffering in the Christian life. We will explore what different Biblical texts, from the psalms to the gospels, have to say on the subject. We will also discuss how the church, and individual Christians, can comfort those who are dealing with trials.
Bird’s Eye View of Romans – Amy Wicks
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.
A better story about Gender for our Children – Eleanor Dickson
How we help our children and young people navigate the complex challenges of life with regard to the gender agenda.
Prayer – Sharon Dickens
How often have we heard a sermon or read a book on prayer that has challenged us to pray more? Yet, no matter the prayer plans we make the challenge somehow doesn’t move us to pray more regularly. All too often it’s a struggle to pray. Why are we not desperate to pray? We become self-reliant. All too often when we do pray it becomes more about us than God. How can we love to be desperate to pray and become dependent on God?
How to grow in Godliness – Karen Clark
Growing in godliness is what are supposed to do once we are saved but it’s not always easy!! Why should this be our life’s goal? How do we do it? And how do we not get discouraged and give up when it gets tough!
How to be a Christian Friend – Alison Watson and Rachel Sloan
How to develop friendships that build and encourage each other as we walk through real life together, each one as an integral part of the body of the church of Christ.
Morning and afternoon
Lies girls believe – Laura Porteous
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’.
