Every Wednesday this month, I will be reposting selected videos from Quarter Life Conference.
I’m so excited to be able to continue the conversation on the topic of church. As an American Christian, I believe it’s way too easy to be apathetic (lazy) about my faith compared to my brothers and sisters sufferings around the world for theirs.
Moreover, I am excited to report that the second Quarter Life Conference exceeded 500 video views, which was more than our first conference! The purpose of reposting a few of the videos is to highlight a few of the stories you shouldn’t miss.
Please let me introduce you to my new friends Maryam Rostampour and Marziyeh Amirizadeh as they share their story of persecution from their new book Captive In Iran. Their story brought me to tears. I can’t remember the last time I sobbed so hard. The fact that they’re around my age and have been through much more than I will ever have to endure made me feel ashamed of my faith.
Am I doing enough to share–even when it hurts or is inconvenient to me?
While you watch Maryam and Marziyeh’s persecuted church video, ask yourself what would you do if you were imprisoned for your faith?
Also, announcing Quarter Life Conference 3.0 on career & social justice on October 3rd.
If you’d like to get involved please leave me a comment or send me an email (renee) at (devotionaldiva) dot (com).
