Anglican Leadership Institute Presents
Two opportunities to hear and interact with great Anglican speakers
It’s never too early to think about the fall and what opportunities there are for our own growth as well as that of our people. In conjunction with St. John’s, Johns Island, and The Chapel at I’On, The Anglican Leadership Institute is offering two great chances for you and your people to hear and interact with great Anglican speakers. Both of these visiting speakers have recently released new books. Now might be a great time to encourage a parish-wide book study in preparation for these events.

Rewriting Your Broken Story: The Power of an Eternal Perspective
How do you fix a broken story? In this fallen world, life is often not how we thought it would be. Jobs vanish, relationships crumble, and health fails. How do we find the hope to persevere? We can make sense of our broken stories by seeing them in the context of a larger and greater story. Ken Boa shows how God can transform our lives with an eternal perspective when we live with the end in mind. In light of eternity our struggles are temporary and our plot twists are not fatal. We are hard-wired by God with eternity in our hearts, and that longing gives us purpose, blesses others, and helps us make a lasting mark on the world. Knowing our future is crucial to living our present. When we see our stories within His greater story, we learn to live with a heavenly perspective and follow it all the way home. Purchase book.
