The 2015 Xenos Summer Institute

Maris and I had a great time together at the 2015 Xenos Summer Institute a few weeks ago along with a couple other New Hopers. The theme was Things to Come. It was a good time of reflection on eternity and its implications for today!

All of the messages (both plenaries and workshops) are available here for free (both video and audio only). I also wanted to send along a couple of my top recommended messages in particular. Just click on the blue links below:

LIFE Group leaders and other leaders! There are many helpful talks from this past institute and the previous years. Don't hesitate to ask for specific recommendations.
