Speaker: Sheila Bowditch
Singleness has its own challenges in Christian circles.
This CD will be an encouragement to all those who are single.
Sheila teaches with passion on meeting the challenge of being a single Christian and coping with attitudes within the world and the Church.
She teaches about issues of sexuality and difficulties single people experience.
Some are depressed or angry with God about not being married. Others may need healing from the pain of broken relationships with the opposite sex.
Sheila presents many positive ideas for how singles can come out of loneliness, nurture their faith and enjoy relationships with others.
(Recorded at Equipped for a Purpose Conference Nov 1997. Sheila has since married and is now Sheila Adams.)
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.
