For Such a Time as This

6–10 May 2024 (Mon–Fri)

As we study the book of Esther, we will be exploring God’s timing in our lives and the purpose of seeming delays. Underpinning this is our trust in God’s goodness -even when the events of our lives place us in circumstances we would never choose and prompt us to take risks we would rather avoid.

Who's speaking?

Beverley Shepherd

Bev is a management trainer and developmental coach. Her connection with Lee Abbey spans 30 years and she knows it to be a place where God’s presence and guiding are tangible. She was a Bible student on the Cornhill Training course, has been greatly helped by Ignatian spirituality, and currently worships in an exuberant multinational Pentecostal church. She is passionate about living out our faith in our workplaces and in 2012 she established LICC’s prayer journeys. Outside of work, walking coastal paths is one of her great joys.
