conference overview

There are stubborn problems that plague many close relationships. Whether single or married there is a starting point that needs to be addressed in the hearts of all of us as relationships are part of life. Dr.Timothy Lane, husband, author, teacher, parent, and counsellor will be guiding us towards our hearts when it comes to relationships. With his vast expertise he will be directing us towards our true assurance and the ultimate solution for long lasting relationship with one another.

The Thursday will be geared towards those presently single or again on their way towards singleness. We are all on that journey whether it be our present situation or through the loss of relationship or death—we all need help navigating singleness.

“None of us ever gets to be in relationship with a finished person. God’s redemptive work of change is ongoing in all our lives.”
― Timothy S. Lane, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making

“When you seek to define who you are through those relationships, you are actually asking another sinner to be your personal messiah, to give you the inward rest of soul that only God can give. Only when I have sought my identity in the proper place (in my relationship with God) am I able to put you in the proper place as well. When I relate to you knowing that I am God’s child and the recipient of his grace, I am able to serve and love you.”
― Timothy S. Lane, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making

“Good relationships are built on a solid foundation. Without this foundation, no amount of hard work will make your relationships what God intended them to be.”
― Timothy S. Lane, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making

“The theology you live out is much more important to your daily life than the theology you claim to believe.”
― Timothy S. Lane, Relationships: A Mess Worth Making

We say that the difficulty causes us to respond in sinful ways. But the Bible teaches again and again that our circumstances don’t cause us to act as we do. They only expose the true condition of our hearts, revealed in our words and actions.
— Timothy S. Lane, How People Change
