The apostle Paul often began his letters with eloquent prayers that contain vital concepts for anyone interested in authentic, dissident discipleship. At Taylor’s 2010 onWORD Bible conference, Dr. Gary Nelson shared insights from a lifetime of study and pastoral leadership in a series of talks called ‘And this is my Prayer for You... Sorting out what Really Matters for the Church.’

This conference also included a number of workshops and breakout sessions.

As part of our Lenten journey we will look at how the three topics of beauty, hope and faith speak into both our understanding of ourselves and our acceptance of the love and vision that God, in Christ Jesus, has for our lives.
