The Well-Played Life with Dr. Len Sweet
Thursday, February 20, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM (CST)
Do you secretly think that the harder you work, the more God is pleased with you? You can live like that—for a while. But imagine what it might mean instead to unclench your teeth, loosen your grip, and actually experience God’s pleasure in you—not just in everything you are doing for God?
This day of dialogue and discovery will be an invitation to a life-journey filled with richness, fruitfulness, and creativity of living in God’s pleasure. Len will help us explore what it means to please God in the nitty-gritty of life; how that changes from the time we are 5 to the time we are 50; and how in every age of our lives, in everything we do, we can experience God’s gift of play. This will be a rich day filled as we discover what it might mean to enjoy (and being enjoyed by) God. You will discover how a Sabbath way of Christian joy is not only possible, but also how we were designed . . . and a core part of God’s plan for our lives.
About Dr. Leonard Sweet (www.leonardsweet.com)
Len was born of a mixed marriage: his mother was a fiery Pilgrim Holiness-ordained preacher from the mountains of West Virginia and his quiet father a Free Methodist lay leader from the Adirondack mountains of upstate New York. After a de-conversion at 17, Len became an atheist intellectual and scholar dedicated to exposing all religions. After this seven-year period, Len came back to the faith of his ancestors, where he has been ever since, exploring the depth of religion, culture and history. Len is obsessed with two questions: "Where have you been?" and "Where are you going?"
