Friends, the end of the year is fast approaching! After the last two years, doesn't it feel like life is finally getting back on track? We're getting Covid (and getting over it), we're going out, we're celebrating milestones, we're working hard, and, sometimes, hardly working. Life seems to be getting back to being ordinary.
But we aren't called to live in the ordinary! The opportunity to grow in faith, hope and love comes and goes with each day but it can be hard to find the time to set aside for the Lord and rest in Him.
The iWitness Conference is back for 2022!
Every year, our world seems to get crazier and crazier. Things change with the blink of an eye. The unrest, unhappiness, and the unknown swirling in our daily lives, it's no wonder we can find life difficult.
This year's conference theme is taken from Proverbs 3:5. With society pushing us to be whatever we want to be, we stand firm in the knowledge that we are His, first and foremost. As we navigate friendships, family, work, and life, we can fall into the trap of thinking we've got to do it all ourselves, be self-sufficient, independent. The 2022 iWitness Conference's theme is a call to rediscover the well-spring of our peace. We invite you to place all your trust in Him, and not to rely on your own insight, but rather rely on the Lord's wisdom.
WHO: YOU! And anyone aged 18-35ish

2021 iwitness conference
LAUNCH OUT into the deep
LET the NETS DOWN FOR A CATCH
The theme for last year's conference was taken from Luke 5:4. God calls us to launch out into the depths of Him, in the deep ocean of interior life. Everything we do, our daily activities and responsibilities, should arise from the overflow of our interior lives. And while the transformation and establishment of a fruitful interior life is important, it doesn't stop there. We are called out; we are called to use that wellspring within us for others, to make God's Kingdom visible and tangible in our world. The theme draws from "The Soul of the Apostolate" by Jean-Baptiste Chautard.
"The end of human creatures is union with God; and in this their happiness consists.”
― Jean-Baptiste Chautard (Soul of the Apostolate)
