Let me just make a quick plug for the upcoming conference we are hosting at Trinity: The Last Enemy, a Christian view of death with Steve Jeffery.
First, you should know that Steve is the Minister of Emmanuel Evangelical Church, in Southgate, North London. He co-authored Pierced for Our Transgressions (IVP, 2007), a defense of the doctrine of penal substitutionary atonement, and The Cross (10 Publishing, 2012), an introduction to the message of the cross. He has lectured and debated in a variety of settings including universities and conferences in the UK, Europe and America. He has appeared on Premier Christian Radio and BBC Radio 4’s Beyond Belief, and he blogs here. He and his wife Nicole have three children. His other loves include jazz, coffee, football, single malt whisky, Yes Minister and Jonathan Edwards. You can also him on Twitter, find him on Facebook and join him on Google+.
Second, here are the details: He will be giving two talks on Friday night, Feb. 21 beginning at 7pm at the new TRC building (101 E. Palouse River Drive, Moscow), and then he will be speaking again on the same theme two times on Sunday morning, once during our Sunday School hour (8:30-9:25) and then again preaching during our Lord’s Day Worship Service (beginning at 10am). Sunday morning is completely free of charge, and Friday evening is just $10 per person or $25 for a family to help cover some of the expenses for this event.
Lastly, if you are within a 100 miles of Moscow, let me just encourage you to come out. I do not think you will be disappointed. We live in a culture that largely insulates us from death and dying, and often we find ourselves unsure about how to respond, how to talk about it, how to comfort others, how to witness to our hope of the resurrection in Jesus. If we want to be faithful disciples of Jesus, we must be prepared to offer comfort and hope in the midst of death and dying, and ultimately, we must each be preparing to face this Last Enemy ourselves. What is a Christian view of dying? Come out next weekend and hear Steve Jeffery encourage us to face down this enemy with the hope and courage that the Scriptures provide.
