We’ll aim to create a province-wide prayer network so that Christians in every provincial riding will be praying for our political and cultural leaders in preparation for our next election. The afternoon church leaders’ event will include a brainstorming session on how to mobilize churches to pray regularly for our province.

Ambassador Training—TOTAL TRUTH with Nancy Pearcey

Total Truth: Living with Integrity in a Post-Truth Society

FEBRUARY 9—CALGARY | CENTER STREET CHURCH | 10:00 - 11:30am

How do we present the Christian truth in a culture that no longer believes in truth? Nancy Pearcey, professor of apologetics at Houston Baptist University, explains how Western culture has lost its grasp on truth and how Christians can communicate more effectively with our secular friends and family members. And don’t think Christians are immune—many young people in the church are absorbing post-truth trends as well. To live with integrity, we need to start with a biblical view of truth.

Nancy Pearcey is the author of the recently released Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality. She is professor and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University and editor-at-large of the Pearcey Report. Her earlier books include The Soul of Science, Saving Leonardo, Finding Truth, and two ECPA Gold Medallion Award Winners: Total Truth and How Now Shall We Live (which was coauthored with Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson). A former agnostic, Pearcey has spoken at universities such as Princeton, Stanford, USC, and Dartmouth, and was hailed in The Economist as "America's pre-eminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual."

Ambassador Training—Loving Our Neighbours (Calgary)

LOVING OUR LGBT NEIGHBOURS

JANUARY 31—EDMONTON | FEBRUARY 1—CALGARY (RSVP for additional info)

TRAINING FOR CHURCH LEADERS: 1 – 4:30 PM | FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC: 7 – 9 PM

As the concepts of gender identity and sexual orientation have dominated the headlines and social media, Christians have struggled to respond with grace and truth. We’ve been told the only way to love our LGBT neighbours is to agree with their beliefs and behaviour. At these events, FBB will host Christian speakers who will help us learn how to engage others on issues of sexuality and gender from a biblical perspective.

Unchanging Truth in Transitioning Times

Everyday Conversations on Gender and Sexuality

How can Christians navigate discussions on gender identity when friends or family members come out as transgender? How do we speak on gender and sexuality issues with grace and truth? In these two sessions, we will examine why Christians ought to trust God’s commands on gender and sexuality as both true and good.
