Welcoming Joy Conference

December 2, 2023 from 8:30 am - 4:30 pm


Join women from Boston and New England at our 2nd collaborative conference! Welcoming Joy: Acknowledging Suffering, Holding Fast to Hope, is our Christian response to the reality of pain and suffering in our lives, our city, and in the world. As women, we experience emotional, psychological, and physical pain such as the loss of a relationship, the death of a loved one, chronic pain, and even depression. We also may watch helplessly as others suffer extreme loss in their life. Yet, our faith asks that we remain hopeful in the midst of affliction. “Count it all joy, my {sisters} when you meet trials of many kinds because you know that the testing of your faith produces patience”. (James 1:2). But how do we count it joy when our heart is in despair? That is just one of the many questions we will consider at this conference.

Jesus’ life provides a model for joy and hope. In Hebrews 12:2b it says For the joy set before him, he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Register here today, and join this conversation on Joy: how to welcome, embrace, and persevere in it!
