Many casual observers assume that the doctrine of sin is at the center of the Christian faith. I guess that's understandable; we talk about sin enough. But, truth be told, sinfulness, brokenness, disappoint, pain... Christianity hardly has a corner on the market for talking about such things, as you see their mark every time you hear the headlines or, for that matter, pay attention to the lives and relationships right around you.
Explore how leaders in the church are both challenged and blessed by the edges we encounter at Spring Convocation 2015. Join us Tuesday, April 28, 2015 on the LTSP campus!
