May 11-17, 2020 offers a week of inspiring words and resources to help us continue to persevere and grow in the hope of Christ... Why hope? After a month of lock-down, sickness, and loss, it’s easy to despair and believe that nothing will ever be “normal” again. It’s easy to be afraid. It’s easy to lose hope. But, we are encouraged in 1 Peter 3: “Do not be afraid or terrified with fear of them, but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts. Always be ready to give an explanation to anyone who asks you for a reason for your hope.”
The TOB Virtual Conference will begin at Noon EDT on Friday, May 8 and close at midnight on May 10 Register for Free! Get access to every presentation and concert by prominent speakers and artists throughout the conference weekend!
Everyone, in every role of life, has the opportunity to live a virtuous life and grow in holiness. It is in the ordinary and sometimes difficult moments in life where we are "built-up" by the grace of God...and become who we are called to be.
