We are proud to announce that registration is now open for the 2011 Peacemaker Conference and Pre-Conference events in Orlando, Florida. This year’s theme is “Hope in Brokenness” and we are very excited about how the Lord is bringing this conference together.
Many of us face evidence of brokenness in our lives from our car breaking down to a family falling apart from divorce. And think about all the tragedies we’ve heard about in the news – tsunami in Japan, earthquake in Myanmar, protests in Egypt and Wisconsin, air strikes in Libya and more. It’s easy to lose hope when we look at the world around us.
But then we gaze upon the gospel of Christ where Jesus himself was broken for us so that we could be made complete. You look through the promises of Scripture and can be overwhelmed by God’s promises to us. And maybe the best news is that the Lord is not done with us yet. He uses everything in our lives for our good and His glory. Maybe this seems cliche but there is deep truth in this Scripture. It’s not only our lives who are effected. Who do you know that needs to seek the God of hope? Who only sees darkness ahead? This conference is not just for you but for your loved ones and even a world that is desperately looking for something (or someone) to hope in.
On this blog we’ll be featuring our keynote speakers: Ken Sande (President of Peacemaker Ministries), Tim Lane (Executive Director of Christian Counseling and Education Foundation), Nancy Guthrie (speaker, author, founders of Respite Retreats) and Dickson Ogwang (Director of Peace and Reconciliation Ministries in Africa, mediator and Deputy Chief of Mission for the Ugandan Embassy). We are excited for you to get to know these individuals who have a passion for sharing about the God of hope.
