Topic: The End of the Christian Life: How Embracing Our MortalityFrees Us to Truly Live
Thursday, February 10 @ 11a (ET) on Zoom.
We're all going to die. Yet in our medically advanced, technological age, many of us see death as a distant reality--something that happens only at the end of a long life or to other people.
In The End of the Christian Life, Todd Billings urges Christians to resist that view. Instead, he calls us to embrace our mortality in our daily life and faith. This is the journey of genuine discipleship, Billings says: following the crucified and resurrected Lord in a world of distraction and false hopes.
Dr. J. Todd Billings is the Gordon H. Girod Research Professor of Reformed Theology at Western Theological Seminary in Holland, MI. An ordained minister in the Reformed Church in America, he received his M.Div. from Fuller Seminary and his Th.D. from Harvard.

You are invited to monthly Church Now Conversations focused on the ministry moment.
One of the things that Vibrant Congregations loves to do is to develop leaders. One of the ways we develop leaders is through something called Church Now Conversations. They happen every month and we bring in a leading thought person from the evangelical world and we ask them to tell us what the church needs to know right now.
We spend an hour on a zoom conversation with them where people get to ask questions, as well as hear a presentation.
