A “New” Approach to Life!

{AS07} Attentive listenersDuring the Wilkes’ stay at our house last weekend we watched the Advanced Seminar with them. It was a very encouraging time for both our families. The wealth of information presented by Dr. Gothard and several other speakers prompted many insightful discussions during the breaks between each video.

{AS07} The whole groupDonald and Dad put many hours into planning an efficient schedule and other logistical preparations, and as a result of their diligence the whole event ran surprisingly smoothly.

Of the several items which God brought out to me during the seminar, a few were:

  • {AS07} Diligent notetakerHow to respond to a humanisitic society,
  • The need to identify and develop spiritual gifts,
  • The need for financial freedom in our day,
  • and Biblical steps to knowing God’s will.

The 23 hours of teaching just flew by, but everyone was invigorated with a fresh perspective of God’s approach to life!

    That was a great summary Daniel. A “new” approach to life definitely describes the ways of God! His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts than our thoughts. And how merciful the Lord was during the month of the Seminar! He twice saved us from getting the Seminar DVDs too late and, through Dad’s counsel, revealed a very good weekend schedule for a Seminar that normally spans a week–And there was so much teamwork behind the scenes. Thanks everyone!
