Searching for Peace in a Chaotic WorldJoin us for this unique conference in October
Life has a way of pressing in and pressing down upon us.
Stress at work, responsibilities with family, church, other activities. Relationship “drama” or walking alongside a friend or loved one in their time of need. The 24-hour news cycle and an almost constant barrage of competing ideas and agendas. Social media, this “great tool” of communication and building community has a dark side. We can end up addicted to the constant ping or ding as Facebook updates, Slack messages or emails scroll across our laptop, phones and now our watches!
Is it no wonder that there are moments when we want to scream out, “Peace, just a moment of peace…where can I go to find peace?”
If we are lucky enough to carve out that sacred space of quiet for ourselves it does not take long for people to find us and want something from us. Just ask any mom how hard it is to find that quiet time.
What are we to do? How do we find peace in the midst of chaos?
Join us SATURDAY, OCT. 7 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for answers provided by this unique day of workshops.
- You can seek, and share peace by adjusting the way you view life. Throughout the day we will help you explore how to weigh expectations and communicate with others.
- You will be taught practical steps on how to navigate various phases of life from raising children, to becoming financially secure to grieving the loss of loved ones.
- Diversity, workplace issues, church and community organizational life will be discussed as unique situations that may require a new approach due to their different dynamics.
- We will address the concerns that come with social media, a 24-hour news cycle, and other avenues of technological advance. You will be provided concrete ideas of how to find peace amidst the rapid changes in technology.
A wide variety of community leaders, as well as FBC speakers, will lead you through these issues and toward answers. Practical, ready-to-use ideas will be given so you will walk out the door at the end of the day on the pathway to finding peace.
The conference runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and includes lunch. The cost is $15 per person or $25 for a dual registration. Advance registration is required.
