Speaker: Liz Rippon & Sheila Bowditch
Suffering loss can be the most painful experience in life.
This CD will be beneficial to those facing grief and bereavement in their own lives or seeking to help others.
Liz shares about the reality of suffering loss, and bereavement, and the unpredictability of our reactions.
The journey through grief is often like a maze and we need someone to show us the way out.
Our faith can get shaken and it is normal to ask questions such as ‘why?’
(Recorded at ‘Equipped for a Purpose’ Conference Nov 1997.)
The vision for Ellel Ministries was to be a place where people can receive ministry and be trained to help others. However, organisations such as Ellel Ministries can’t possibly meet all the needs. The demand for personal ministry is overwhelming.
Many churches want to help but they don’t know how. Others don’t have enough people in their congregations who are properly equipped. For this reason the conference ‘Equipped for a Purpose’ was held. It was planned to help the Church with the task of equipping its people to fulfil the Great Commission to preach the good news of the Kingdom and heal the sick.
Why is healing so important to the Body of Christ? In reality we all need healing from the consequences of living in a fallen world, but we are not just referring to healing from the obvious symptoms of sickness and disease –important though that is.
Paul prayed that we might be whole in spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23) and the process of walking towards healing brings reality and encourages us to grow in maturity as strong disciples of Jesus.
