Sexual Sanity for Women: A Biblical Apologetic for Sexuality in a LGBT, Tinder and Online Dating World – Melanie Cogdill

In addition, rapid fire answers to cover questions about SSA (same-sex attraction), LGBTQ issues, sexting and more.
Speaking Truth in Love: Biblical Counseling in Everyday Life – Cathy Chang
When we consider our everyday conversations, what comes to mind? Perhaps it is talk of jobs, children, or social media. Perhaps it is something weightier or more personal. But in those conversations, how does the Gospel impact what we say and how we relate to and counsel one another? Too often in the church our words are superficial, selfishly motivated, or a reflection of popular culture rather than a thoughtful sharing of biblical wisdom. Join us as we discuss the source and impact of our words and how biblically spoken truth can dramatically change our relationships.
Gospel Friendships and Titus 2 – Teri Anderson
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, “What! You, too? I thought I was the only one.” (CS Lewis) When we consider Biblical examples of friendship, David & Jonathan pop into our heads—or Ruth & Naomi. How about “Job’s friends”? They DID make “an appointment together to come show him sympathy and comfort him. Is this what makes a good friend? “Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But, woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10) Is this what makes a good friend? As CS Lewis also noted, “Friendship must be about something, even if it were only an enthusiasm for dominoes or white mice.” But what makes a friendship Gospel-centric? This workshop will explore both the “why” and the “how” of the “something” that elevates a friendship to one which fulfills what we label the Titus 2 call to discipleship. Bring both your questions and your ideas to share during out time together!
How to Wait and Pray for My Adam – Lauren Choi
Since I was in high school I formed the list of prayers for my future husband. Obviously the list got shorter as I was getting older and I became increasingly impatient with God’s timing. At times, I questioned myself if I was praying “right”. During that time of impatient waiting and confusion, God revealed His answer through Genesis 24. My seminar will be a walking through the journey of Abraham’s servant, Eliezer, searching for his young master, Isaac’s wife. Hopefully this study will help with the what’s and how’s of praying for a future husband for our single sisters.
