Bill's Blog: RUN THE RACE!
We are one month away from our AGC National Conference (June 2-4, 2016) hosted this year by our AGC church in beautiful Banff, Alberta. Our theme is "Run the Race" and our guest speaker is Tim Schroeder, well known across Canada for his writings and speaking. Tim is a marathon runner and we are looking forward to seeing how he will unfold the theme “running with endurance the race set before us.”
At times, we may focus only on how to run our best. We easily cheer on those who seem to run well and, by contrast, quietly encourage and at times, even chide those who run with halting steps, those who fear they are not keeping up.
In the Christian race, how do we balance man's responsibility with that of the overwhelming power and persevering work of the Holy Spirit at work in us? How do we balance these issues in a society that rewards excellence more than endurance?
