Woman with the alabaster jar
The Tops Conference Centre, Stanwell Tops
13-15 march 2020
A bruised reed he will not break, and
a smouldering wick he will not snuff out.
We live in a broken world. Brokenness is all around us.
In what ways might you feel broken?
In Luke 7:36-50 we meet a daring woman holding an alabaster jar, who, in the face of condemnation receives her forgiveness, peace and acceptance in the presence of her loving saviour—Jesus. Kintsugi is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery by mending the areas of breakage with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.
In that same way Jesus ministers to the shattered pieces of our brokenness to produce a unique and beautiful mosaic.
What is E3?
A weekend conference, held by CWCI. We have talks and activities lead by experienced and real Christians, who walk the Christian life and know what it’s like. People who have really lived their faith. Come escape the everyday and connect with God.
know the hope to which he has called you
by the riches of his glorious inheritance
that power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted
E3 Is a conference for those who seek to immerse themselves in Bible teaching that transforms how they live a life of faith.
Our speakers are women who have lived a life of faith which they share, bringing the Bible to life.
There are many opportunities to pray in groups, pairs or individually so that we may be strengthened with power through his Spirit in our inner being.
We sing old and new songs with a great band and you can dance while you sing.
I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you
Beth Allison is passionate about seeing lives transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit, as well as the practical application of the Christian faith to everyday life. One of her greatest delights is seeing people encounter God as he truly is—a loving heavenly Father who understands brokenness and who accepts us, and even uses us, just as we are.
