The closest I came to attending T4G was running into conference attendees at our local Louisville Chick-Fil-A. But I feel like I might as well have been there—and I haven’t left yet! I’ve been working my way through the main sessions and now the panel discussions and breakout sessions.
So I just have to jump in with one more recommendation: the panel discussion on complementarianism moderated by Ligon Duncan, with John Piper, Russell Moore, and Greg Gilbert. I didn’t know what to expect from a panel discussion for pastors, but I found this conversation thought-provoking, convicting, and encouraging. I really enjoyed hearing from John Piper about the origins of the term “complementarian” (and I’m waiting for the day when spell check will recognize it!), but I was also challenged to ask myself once again how I am glorifying God as a woman and reflecting the gospel in my marriage.
I don’t know about you, but I need constant reminders of the glorious truths that undergird the daily grind. This thirty-minute panel discussion gave me fresh vision and I think you’ll be inspired too. I’ll leave you with this snippet, and a little nudge to take the time to listen this week.
“When you see that mother who is not seeking her own career advancement but really sees pouring herself into nurturing the next generation and Titus 2 woman to woman ministry as being valuable and worth it, you are seeing something that looks increasingly strange to the outside culture, but strange in a glorious way.” ~Russell Moore
