Description

In this, the 20th annual Christian in the Marketplace Conference, experienced and thoughtful speakers explore the biblical roots of Sabbath and the spirituality of Christian serenity. This conference examines how in the midst of pressure, we can live with serenity at the centre -- rather than the edges -- of our involvement with the world.
