“An Evening with Dan Allender”
A Conversation about Sabbath and Other Topics of Our Time
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. As part of a wider ranging presentation, prominent therapist, author and speaker Dr. Dan Allender made a refreshing case for what Sabbath means – expelling the myths and exploring what Jesus intended.

MeadowStone evokes the natural foundations of historic Delta Farm – majestic meadows and solid stones.
From waving grasses on rolling hills to the winding, spring-fed creek that offers year-round waters for life, our site has always exuded great energy and beauty.
Over time, the meadow stones came to serve a multitude of purposes – becoming stately gates, simple fireplaces, the long wall that still guides visitors further in. Yet others became the rich tapestry of stonework that is the Stone Barn – the heart of Meadowkirk’s campus.
And, of course, this long-ago gathering of stones enabled planting and harvest – more glorious growth in the meadows.
It is this image of life-giving gathering and building up that recalls some words from Scripture: “As you come to Him…you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house….”
It is with this image and promise in view that we offer the MeadowStone Series – life-renewing, transformational togetherness in beautiful spaces. Please join us for this opportunity to experience nature and God’s nurture – to become built up, vibrant like the meadow and strong like stone.
