Seminar – Speech

On Mondays we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention. For the next few weeks, we’ll be telling you a bit more about the range of Seminars that are on offer.

Shona Hannant, from London, will be leading a seminar together called “A Way With Words”.

What is the seminar about?
Speech and how our words can do great good or cause great harm and what difference the gospel makes to our words.

Who is the seminar for?
Anyone! We probably all need to think more about the effect our words have and how in our speech we can honour the Lord Jesus

Why is this area important?
Women have a reputation for speaking more than we listen…and most of us know the awful shame of having spoken badly, but the gospel brings hope and transformation.

Besides your seminar, what one thing about the Scottish Women’s Convention are you looking forward to and why?
A trip to Edinburgh (a real treat for a Londoner), catching up with old friends.

Seminar – Teenage Girls

On Mondays we like to draw your attention to certain aspects of the Scottish Women’s Bible Convention. For the next few weeks, we’ll be telling you a bit more about the range of Seminars that are on offer.

Laura Porteous, from Glasgow, will be leading the seminar for teenage girls again this year and has taken time to tell us more. If you are signing up for this stream, please indicate that you are under 18 when purchasing your ticket.

What is the title of your seminar at the Scottish Women’s Convention?

20,000 words a day – what are you saying?

What is the seminar about?

It is about our speech and all those moment when we have that sinking feeling when you think to yourself, ‘I shouldn’t have said that!’ or that equally well known feeling when you think to yourself, ‘Why didn’t I say that?’ We’ll have an honest look at our bad speech habits and let the bible shine a light on how our words really do make a world of difference. 

Who is the seminar for?

Any teenage girls who come to the convention! The seminar will be aimed at S3-S6. For girls prepared to get their noses stuck into their bibles and brains in gear about glorifying God and loving others with our words.

Why is this area important?

As girls, we’ve got so much to say but is it all helpful? Are we known for our words of encouragement or for our grumbling and groaning? We need the Bible to teach us how to use our words for good and the encouragement of one other to do this well.

Besides your seminar, what one thing about the Scottish Women’s Convention are you looking forward to and why?

The mutual encouragement – joining together with so many friends from around Scotland and learning from their wisdom. I also love the music and the singing!
