Just Love? A Day Conference with Dr. Garry Williams

If you are a pastor and live in North or Mid Wales, Liverpool, Cheshire, Manchester, Shrewsbury etc. then this is for you (if you are prepared to travel from further afield then don't let me stop you).

The Evangelical Movement of Wales has a day conference on the atonement on Tuesday 2nd March at the Bryn-y-Groes Conference Centre in Bala.

Here are the current details:

Just love?

The atoning work of Christ and the attributes of God


Speaker: Dr. Garry Williams, Director of the John Owen Centre at London Theological Seminary.

Coffee will be served at 10.30am and the first session will be at 11am. Lunch is available at the venue, or you can bring sandwiches or buy locally. There will be a cost for the day which I will update you on just as soon as I can.

There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion at the end of each of the two main sessions.

Here's the blurb:

The sessions will explore the relationship between the attributes of God and the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Should we still speak of God’s attributes? Given who God is, was the atonement necessary? Was it necessary because God is just, or merciful, or both? Is he more loving than he is just, or more just than he is loving, or neither?

Having explored these theological questions we will then consider their consequences for preaching and teaching the cross today.

Sorry not to have made it. Hopefully I will catch up with you at the Banner.

It's at times like this that I'm tempted to say that Crickhowell is in mid-Wales!

I remember the time when people talked about North Wales and I assumed that they meant Merthyr.
