What the Changes to Verity Really Mean

If you read last week's blog, you know that the Verity Fellowship is merging with The Gospel Coalition to create the TGC Women's Training Network. It's exciting news! And as with any change, there's often questions. Let us tell you what isn't changing around here.

Verity’s Big News 

God can do anything. It’s one of the most incredible things about him! This truth has played out in the story of the Verity Fellowship. And now, big changes are coming. Read on to hear about them, and about the God who is continuing to do the impossible. 

How God's Story Changes Me

Why was teaching the “One Story of Scripture” workshop such an awesome experience? Because learning the story of Scripture changed my heart and my life. And because it continues to change my life as I learn more and more about God’s deep love for his people.

Making the Most of Our Time

We live in a culture that is consumed by how we use our time, where everyone seems to be on a treadmill running to fill every spare minute. As God’s people, how are we to use our time? In Ephesians 5:15-16, Paul instructs us to make the best use of time, which is not as difficult as we might think.

Patched Potholes 

Harsh winter conditions led to some rough roads last year. It had me considering the different repair options – patches or repaving. Sin is destructive as well, and can leave some bad scars. Can we patch those ourselves, or has someone already repaved the road for us?  

The Boundlessness of God   

 Do you ever get depressed at the brevity of life? Frustrated by your lack of control? Disheartened because of your past sins? The last chapter of John gives us much reason to take heart: the boundlessness of Jesus more than makes up for all our human limitations. 

Verity Forum 2018 Recap

Verity Forum 2018 is behind us, but the unity we shared as sisters in Christ continues to encourage our hearts. Read on to view the highlights of the day and just a few enthusiastic takeaways. 

Take A Stand

For many “taking a stand” can mean subtly referencing your Christian faith, but as believers, we are called to more than that- gracious and clear gospel conversations. In an age when Christians are poorly represented by the media, how will people know what defines us if we do not speak up?

The Unclean Become Clean 

In Mark's gospel, he paints a contrast between the clean and the unclean. Jesus judges the unclean, although they may not be who you expect, and cleanses those who humbly come to him. Mark wants his readers to realize that they themselves are unclean and that only Jesus can make them clean.

Count It All Joy 

“Count it all joy…” What if that doesn’t come easily or naturally? What if my circumstances are just too hard? Yes, even then we can find joy, if we will look to the source. 

Racial Reconciliation Is A Gospel Issue

Although racial reconciliation isn't an easy subject to tackle, it's nonetheless an important subject for Christians to address. It's an issue that concerns the heart of Jesus - and so it concerns each of us.  Cynthia’s workshop at Verity Forum will delve into this important issue. Read on to get a taste of what to expect from her in the Unity and Dignity track. 

Out with the Old, In with the New

We all want to be better. We long to get rid of our faults and become improved versions of ourselves. That’s why many of us make resolutions each New Year’s. But today let’s consider this: Believers have a solid assurance of renewal in Christ. If you’d like encouragement in this truth, read on in today’s post. 

Peace on Earth?

Promises of freedom, joy, and peace sung about this time of year can feel like a mocking song when we look at the heartache around us. So are these promises kept and how do we see Christmas today? 

The Wonder of the Mundane 

It’s Christmastime, a season mixed with equal parts mundane and wonder. There’s the list making, the shopping, the lines, the wrapping. And then there’s the shepherds, the angels, the good news, and the baby. This baby, who was the fulfillment of a promise made at the dawn of time, came for you. For just a moment now, take a break from the mundane and know again the wonder of his birth.

The Verity Fellowship as a Conduit

The Verity Fellowship exists to encourage and equip women to use the Scriptures well.  We believe that women have much to offer the Kingdom of God in both formal and informal roles of ministry.  We are excited to announce a new way we can serve to encourage you as you fulfill these roles. Read more about a new addition to our website.

The Woman Who Wandered

We live in a world full of temptations. We wander. We sin. We fall. The amazing part of our story is that God rescues us...every day. When we wander (and we will in one way or another), he will call us back to him. Let me share a story with you about a woman who wandered from God.

Verity Training's Big Picture

Verity Training is a two-day event that will help you teach the Bible well. But before you get wrapped up in the fun details, pause a moment to take in the grandeur of the all-powerful speech of God that has the ability to raise the dead. And let yourself stand in awe of the fact that he uses weak people like you and me to accomplish his work.

The Nearly Forgotten Holiday 

Thanksgiving. It’s all about the food, right? Or maybe about the shopping? Every year it seems to come and go with less fanfare than the year before. But what if we choose to embrace it as the perfect way to kick off the advent season? How can we make Thanksgiving all about what God has done? 

What Makes Verity, Verity? 

How do we explain what Verity does? We have events, a blog, a training to teach, and ministry mentoring.  That seems simple enough, right? But it goes much deeper - read on the learn more.
