Dr. David Benner
Because of a commitment to the growth of people in Christ and to the service of the church, Hardin-Simmons University and HSU’s Logsdon Seminary is offering a conference on Transformational Spirituality from a Christian perspective. All presentations are free and open to the public.
Dr. David Benner, renowned author and speaker, will be leading the conference, Monday, October 15 – Tuesday, October 16, 2012, which will take place in Logsdon Chapel and during the weekly chapel time in Behrens Auditorium.
The scripture tells us that God has made us alive by breathing God’s own Spirit into us. As a result, each of us is on a spiritual journey of becoming all that God intends for us to be.
Likewise, spiritual transformation is not something for the spiritual elites among us. We are all called as Christians to be “conformed to the image of Christ.” (Romans 8:29). While this process of becoming like Christ is the gift and work of the Spirit, the work can never be made complete until we participate in it.
