If being a conference attender was a career, I would want to be a professional. I love soaking in intensive learning, meeting new friends and catching up with old ones, and getting away from everyday life to focus on worship and learning. With Peter’s desire to build shelters and stay on the Mount of Transfiguration, I think he could have been a professional conference attender, too.
Unfortunately, conference attending is not a career, and I don’t have the time or the resources to attend every one I would like to attend. But one of the true blessings of technology is that we can attend as many conferences as possible through the joy of steaming video, blogging, and audio feeds. We can’t actually attend them all, but we can be lifelong learners by learning from one another.
This weekend, for the first time, I get to be the one on the giving end of providing the conference for others. The Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference will be taking place Friday through Sunday in Orlando, and I will be live blogging over at kd316.com.
I will post notes and brief reflections of both the plenary sessions and select breakout sessions.
The theme of this year’s conference is Here is Our God: God’s Revelation of Himself in Scripture. It promises to be a weekend overflowing with encouraging and challenging messages from some of my favorite people in ministry.
