Prayer • Seminar Series 1 • Thursday, March 16 • 8:30 pm – 9:45 pm Do my prayers make any difference? Does God listen to me? Why should God care about me?

Philip Yancey will be addressing these and other important issues regarding prayer, based on his best-selling book Prayer: Does It Make Any Difference?
What’s Ahead for the Church? • Seminar Series 2 • Friday, March 17 • 10:30 – 11:45 am | Jesus turned over the Gospel mission to his disciples. Yet, over time, places where the faith once flourished—the Middle East, Central Europe, and now the USA—have shrinking churches. Two-thirds of Christians now lie outside of Europe and North America. Why does God seem to “move” geographically, from one continent to another? And how can the church best flourish amid the new realities of a secular culture?
Seasons of the Soul • General Session 5 • Saturday, March 5, 8:30 am – 10:00 am | Much like seasons of the year (and unlike Hawaii!), the Christian life includes different seasons or stages. Philip Yancey will walk us through the Springtime of new life, Summer of productivity, Fall of doubt and Winter of grief, drawing spiritual lessons to help us cope, no matter our circumstances.
