The Works of God: God's Good Design in Disability

Desiring God, a resource ministry of John Piper, is sponsoring a conference on disability and the Bible on Nov. 8, 2012 in Minneapolis, MN called The Works of God: God’s Good Design in Disability. I realize this is not for a while into the future, but I'm very excited to think about how great this will be!

Speakers will incude Nancy GuthrieGreg LucasMark Talbot, and John Piper (A pretty amazing group of people!)
...The easy answer as to why a conference on disability and the Bible is that God has a lot to say on the subject in his book – for his glory and for our good – and that it impacts a lot of people – more than 1 billion people around the world.
It will be like none I’ve experienced or seen, but one I’ve longed to see for quite some time.  The emphasis will be on God’s sovereignty over disability, suffering and even death.It will be full of Bible.  Each of the speakers takes God’s word very seriously for the sake of their own joy.
If you’ve ever searched for sermons or conference messages on disability and the Bible, you already know there’s a lot of bad stuff out there.  It will be good to have more edifying, God-centered materials available and accessible to people searching for the truth.
And with this conference, Desiring God and Bethlehem are getting into the stream that is growing on this issue of disability in ways that make my heart beat faster in anticipation about what God might be doing.
So, I hope you will come!
