Autumn conference for big & small 2021

Theme: Do not quench the Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:19)

Date: 8 -10 October 2021

"Do not quench the Spirit!" urges Paul in the epistle text included in the reading for Sunday during our forthcoming Autumn Conference. He does so in a long shock of exhortations (chapter 5) where the main message is to persevere and cling to Christ in a world of trial until the moment "when our Lord Jesus Christ comes" (5:23).

In these times of restrictions and exceptions, several of the most important expressions of Christian everyday life - worship, song, fellowship and communion - have been banned and many have succumbed to loneliness and hopelessness. How do we keep the flame burning and the closeness to Christ in times like these? Where is my identity and security as a Christian in times when the church is forced to close and how do we not to extinguish our relationship with the Living God even in times of hardship?

Vincent Ihlberg - newly installed priest in EFS Karlstad - will lead us in this reflection by sharing his thoughts on "Living in the presence of God". We confess a God who is faithful even when we are unfaithful, loving even when we are loveless and merciful where we do not show mercy. Let us seek this God together at Sandvikengården's autumn conference and together seek to live in His presence and let Him keep our spirits burning!
