The theme of the annual Christian Legal Society conference was timely: The Call of Christians in the Law: Justice, Mercy, Humility. In this week so close to the election, those topics were highly relevant. Many of speakers addressed issues of religious freedom in our land—most were pessimistic. Please pray for wisdom and guidance for our leaders concerning Supreme Court nominations.
Our office had a team of 5 at the conference. Bob Trierweiler and I gave a seminar entitled “He Is Risen Indeed: A Lawyer’s Perspective on Apologetics for the Death and Resurrection of Jesus.” This presentation was based on a blog series I did several years ago, which I adapted for the conference. We haven’t seen the evaluation forms yet, but several people approached us later to say how it helped them. If you would like to read the articles, go to https://lynnmaynard.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/resurrection-miracle-or-myth/ The series ran through Easter, so you will need to click on “Next” to continue reading the blogs.
Praise and worship was wonderful, led by a team from Cru. Another Cru team ran the audio-visual system. Meg Given, of our office, coordinated the Prayer Team. During the breaks, we five from the General Counsel’s office took turns manning our booth, with information about our internship program for law students and the “Faith and Law Around the Globe (FLAG)” ministry. The rest of the four-day conference was jam-packed with numerous options for Continuing Legal Education Credits, all from a Christian perspective.
Thank you for all your prayers. All of us arrived home safely, tired but happy.
