BE BRAVE: LIFE IN A HOSTILE WORLD
JUNIOR DOCTORS' CONFERENCE
A conference for all junior doctors, from FY1 to senior registrar, and those taking time out of training.
We live in a world increasingly hostile to God and to us his people. How are we to exhibit godly and courageous lives as his 'minority' people?
The book of Esther speaks to us as Christians, who live in a secular world where oppression and marginalisation are commonplace. Confronted by the genocide of their people, Esther and Mordecai stay calm and controlled; and in faith and with courage and integrity, they use the opportunities God lays before them. The book of Esther speaks powerfully about how our lives can be used to make transformative changes for God's kingdom within the hostile world that surrounds us.
As part of the International Christian Medical and Dental Association (ICMDA), CMF has a vision to build a Christian medical witness across the globe. This year's Junior Doctors' Conference is a collaboration with the Western Europe Junior Doctors' Conference. Members from the UK and Western Europe are invited to share experiences, build friendships, and be encouraged and equipped to serve Christ. We will also be hosting delegates from SYD2 on the weekend. Come and be enthused by how God is working through healthcare in the UK, Europe, and further afield!
Special note: If you are travelling to the conference from Europe as part of ICMDA, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for advice on transport.
