Are you feeling tattered and worn out?

Has life turned out differently than you expected?

What does it mean that we are new creations, when our lives feel so old?

For our second annual Abiding Life Conference, we invited author and professor Jerry Sittser to speak on how God is working in the midst of our stories. The event took place October 11 - 13, 2013 at the Saddleback Retreat Center. For more information on the Saddleback Retreat Ministry, please visit our website:
