Should Christians Want? Southwinds Church Women’s Conference

Should Christians Want?
Jen Pollock Michel, Award Winning Author, Leads Southwinds Church Women’s Conference.
Tracy, CA—Best-selling author Jen Pollock Michel will draw from her book Teach Us to Want: Longing, Ambition and the Life of Faith as she leads Southwinds Church’s May 19-20 Women’s Conference.
Southwinds will host the conference, “Teach Us To Want: Learning the Language of Holy Desire”, May 19, 7-9:30PM & May 20, 8AM-Noon at Southwinds Church, Tracy, CA. All women are invited and may register online at southwinds.org/women. The cost is $29.00.
Christianity Today awarded Teach Us To Want the 2015 Book of the Year honor. In it Michel shares her struggle to resolve desire and obedience. She writes, “We simply can’t ignore desire. Like a heartbeat, desire pulses steadily in the backdrop of our lives. We may not always be aware of the work desire is doing, and yet it provides much of the necessary energy on which we rely.” Through her writing and speaking Michel leads followers of Christ from a fear of desire as selfishness to a trust in desire as God’s way to bless others.
The Women’s Ministry Team at Southwinds organized the conference for area women who usually must travel to Sacramento or San Jose to hear nationally recognized speakers. The team was also concerned for families whose schedules and finances can preclude women from attending such events. The team hopes women will spread the word to friends and family.
Southwinds encourages area churches to bring groups of women. Registration allows for multiple ticket purchases. The planners envision women growing in faith and in community with others. After each of Michel’s messages, women will have an opportunity to discuss what they’ve heard with those around them. Friday night will conclude with a worship concert featuring the Southwinds Praise Team.
