Have no fear of them, nor be troubled, but in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience… (I Peter 3: 14-16 ESV)
Last week I was invited to attend the Reason For Hope conference at Regent University’s Founders Inn in Virginia Beach. The two-day conference was sponsored by the Foundation for American Christian Education (FACE). It was a great conference with a number of very well informed speakers. A lot of material was made available to the attendees.
I came back to Richmond with an invigorated feeling that there truly is a “Reason For Hope”; that hope is Christian education for our youth. I encourage everyone to visit the FACE website (face.net) and learn more about this organization and the resources that they offer.
In the photos below, you will see me with Carol Adams, the President of FACE and the Founder of Stonebridge Christian School; Bishop EW Jackson, who spoke at the conference; and Tricia Stall, a VCA Advisory Board Member, who also attended the conference.
There is only one “Reason For Hope” and that is for our Nation to ask God to forgive us and heal our land.
