This Week's Another Empty Conversation: CCEF's Everyday Worship Conference Recap

Sarah and Josh attended the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation's conference about everyday worship. This week they decided to discuss their experience on the podcast. The conference centered around how God brings the Bible to life. Here is an excerpt from the conference website

What is going on when Scripture comes alive for you? What is happening when you take to heart some word from God? Some promise of mercy strikes you as inescapably relevant. An explanation of why we suffer makes utter good sense. A revelation of who the Lord is captures your imagination. Some call to faith and obedience comes with life-redirecting force.

In our time together, we will be talking about—and acting on—how the words of God become personally relevant.

Some of us struggle to read the bible or we read the parts that we like and ignore the parts that are harder to understand because we can't apply them to our lives today. This conference helped apply the whole bible to every day life and Josh and Sarah explain what they learned in the podcast below.

Blog Roundup: Humans are crappy💩 friends and more about the CCEF conference. 

Josh writes about when your friends let you down. Even the best of friends can be the worst of friends. Jesus had friends that often let him down. Nobody is perfect. We suck at relationships. We stab people in the back. You get the idea. How can Christian's reconcile relationships with bad friends? Read his blog to find out!

As mentioned above, Josh and Sarah attended a conference on every day worship. Sarah writes about something she learned from the conference: asking the right questions when reading the bible. Josh writes a general overview of his thoughts on the conference as a whole.
