An Evening with Dan Allender:
A Conversation about Sabbath and Other Topics of Our Time
What would you do for 24 hours if the only criteria were to pursue your deepest joy?
When it comes to the commandment to keep the Sabbath holy, it’s rare to find any Christian seriously working out what that means – other than perhaps attending church on Sunday. How we engage the “day of rest” says a great deal about how we lead our lives and lead others to live. As part of a wider ranging presentation, prominent therapist, author and speaker Dr. Dan Allender will make a refreshing case for what Sabbath means – expelling the myths and exploring what Jesus intended. A renewed sense of Sabbath will free us:
...from being a messiah, with the pressure and exhaustion that brings.
...to explore God's goodness as one of the highest claims on our life.
Please join us for the powerful perspectives of Dan Allender, including his invitation to experience the delight of Sabbath as you never have before.
Dan Allender has pioneered an innovative approach to trauma and abuse therapy over the past 30 years. In 1997, Dan and a cadre of others founded The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology, in order to train therapists, pastors, artists, and leaders to more effectively serve in the context of the 21st century. The author of numerous books, including Sabbath: The Ancient Practices, he travels and speaks extensively to present his unique perspective on sexual abuse recovery, love and forgiveness, intimacy and marriage, worship, and other topics.
