My church, North Boulevard, is dedicated to the scriptures and building a biblical worldview, so a few times a year, we invite prominent Christian speakers to come to share their insights at what we call The School of Christian Thought. We have had a wide range of Christians from all over the world speak on a plethora of topics: atheism, finances, science, Judaism, Islam, sex trafficking, filmmaking, homosexuality, business practice, abortion, persecution, marriage, and (of course) progressive Christianity to name a few. You can find biographies and recordings of many of our past speakers at schoolofchristianthought.com.
A few weeks ago, we had the pleasure of hearing the testimony of New York Times best-selling author and president of Proverbs 31 Ministries, Lysa TerKeurst. I am still amazed by the number of hardships she has had to face in her lifetime. So many people who should have been trustworthy proved that they were not with heartbreaking betrayal after betrayal. And even still, Lysa holds fast to word of God and is able to share an inspiring story of forgiveness.
I had the opportunity to ask her a few questions before she left. You can watch the Q&A session here:
Lysa has written over 20 books including Uninvited, It's Not Supposed to Be This Way, The Best Yes, Unglued, Made to Crave and her current best seller Forgiving What You Can't Forget. Lysa was recently awarded the Champions of Faith Author Award and has been published in multiple publications such as Focus on the Family and CNN online. Additionally, she has appeared on The Today Show as one of the leading voices in the Christian community.
Connect with her at www.LysaTerKeurst.com or on social media at @LysaTerKeurst.
