Our stories, in all their beauty and heartache, shape and influence every dimension of our daily life and relationships. Knowing the impact of our story and finding God’s redemptive work within it is vital for emotional, relational, and spiritual formation and health.
Listen to a preview of the To Be Told conference simulcast via COS Podcast that focuses on catastrophic stories and the ways that we can engage those stories that are beyond our capacity to understand. Ultimately, how can we bring the goodness of God into these difficult stories?
Giving ourselves permission to explore how the goodness and the pain in our life has shaped us opens the door to transformation and a deeper capacity for joy, intimacy, and fulfillment. To Be Told is far more than the popularized movement to “know your story.” It is an invitation to truth-telling, healing lament, deep soulfulness, and lasting change.
Dr. Dan Allender has been a story sojourner for more than 30 years. He brings his own vulnerability and kind spirit to his teaching as he challenges individuals, couples, and communities to do the important, holy work of entering their stories with grace, courage, and hope.
This live, simulcast event is a unique opportunity to bring Dr. Allender back to Church of the Saviour so that we can experience alongside our friends and family how our stories shape our faith, understanding of self, relationships, and engagement in everyday life.

Purity for Him is a Christian support group for sexual addiction providing knowledge, encouragement, accountability, and tools to help free men from pornography, adultery, and lust. The group meets weekly and practices strict anonymity.
Experts state support groups are essential in obtaining and maintaining sobriety from sexual addiction. Statistics indicate over 1/2 of clergy and over 2/3 of men in the church suffer from sexual addiction. YOU ARE NOT ALONE. “If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!”
Contact Purity for Him at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Meeting times and locations are not published. Only the volunteer leader of Purity for Him monitors this email address, and will maintain strict anonymity for anyone making contact.
Purity for Him should be used in conjunction with, not in place of, counseling.
