It’s still the nation’s oldest and largest free Bible conference, and it still offers a refreshing week of spiritual renewal with outstanding Bible teachers. This year it’s going virtual. The Theme: Waymaker. The dates: February 2-5. We’re giving you a preview all week long. In the 8 am hour, Emanuel Padilla from Moody Bible Institute joins us with his preview.
Plus, from looking outwardly to please others to looking inwardly to define ourselves, we constantly try to cultivate or construct our identities. But guided by the whims of culture or the faulty advice of tradition, we often find identity collapses when life falls apart or change threatens that fragile structure. Is it possible to discover an identity bolstered with unassailable confidence, strengthened for the challenges of life rather than destroyed by them, and free from the whims of cultural pressure? Yes! It is an identity received, not achieved—an identity established in the gospel. Pastor Cary Schmidt's new book Stop Trying tackles all of this. He stops by to chat about it at 8:30 am.
