Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin, yet I tell you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Luke 12:27 | 你 想 百 合 花 怎 麼 長 起 來 ； 他 也 不 勞 苦 ， 也 不 紡 線 。 然 而 我 告 訴 你 們 ， 就 是 所 羅 門 極 榮 華 的 時 候 ， 他 所 穿 戴 的 ， 還 不 如 這 花 一 朵 呢 ！路 加 福 音 12:27MTC Registration Hotel Reservation
As we look forward to our 25th year of gathering together for the Midwest Thanksgiving Conference (MTC), it is a humbling acknowledgement of how the Holy Spirit has used a small band of Jesus’ followers to impact many lives and advance His Kingdom. While there have been many highlights throughout the years of MTC, a message and experience that has been resonating with us for quite some time is what we have come to recognize as “Jacob’s Limp”. We are coming through a profound season of brokenness, questioning, struggling and wrestling with the Lord. The call to intimacy with Him can at times leave us marked with the weakness of a “limp” – but in the end but there is also His presence we can lean upon as we discover what it means to “deny ourselves, daily take up our cross and follow Jesus.” (Luke 9:23). While it would have been awesome to share about the blessings of “Jacob’s Well” or the revelations of “Jacob’s Ladder” we want to invite you to journey with us into this place of struggle, pain, but then flowing into His presence with the outcome of “Jacob’s Limp”. This wrestling with God is an experience many have had or are currently in the midst of – come join us as we pursue the Kingdom moving at the speed of our limp, we can move together in this.
