Just when we think we have settled our account, life presents a new one, more difficult to pay. – T.S. Eliot
One of The Onion’s most brilliant headlines has got to be “Man Gets Life in Order for 36 Minutes.” Who can’t relate? The story captures something important about our daily lives. Try as we might, need and trouble never seem to go away – in relationships, in work, in the world, in ourselves. It can be exhausting, to say the least! Fortunately, the good news of God’s grace has no expiration date. Join us in Manhattan this coming April 18-20th as we explore what the Christian faith has to say to us about today… tomorrow… and the next day.
Our keynote speaker this year will be Tullian Tchividjian, noted author, pastor and all-round hero. We are still waiting to confirm a couple of very special guests, but rest assured Tullian will be joined by other members of the Mockingbird team, with devotions from conference chaplain Drew Rollins. There will also be a number of breakout sessions, covering a wide range of topics, from television and social media, to addiction and theology, to literature and parenting. The full schedule will be up by Feb 1st.
If the past five years are anything to go by, the conference is sure to be a time of warmth, fun, great food, and maybe even a little emancipation. We hope you can come!
The event is open to anyone and everyone. Our emphasis at Mockingbird is always on keeping things as down-to-earth as possible. Just be sure to pre-register ASAP, as space is limited.
