Courage in the chaos - lessons from the life of Daniel
Uni, placement, exams, family, friends, church, life! With pressures from left, right and centre, and increasing hostility to our Christian faith, we as Christian medical, nursing and midwifery students can feel caught up in a chaotic world. So, what does it take for us to courageously live for Christ in the classroom, clinic and beyond?
Like us, Daniel knew what it was like to live in a world where he faced opposition. What he believed and how he chose to live his life was different from the status quo. Yet in Babylon, the superpower of its day, he held on to the truth of who God is and faithfully served him.
Join us for CMF Student conference 2024, where Dr Amy Orr-Ewing will help us draw lessons from Daniel's life and encourage and equip us to courageously live and speak for Jesus amidst the chaos of life!
