Sprirtual Life Days Provides Lessons from "The Widow"

Date: October 14, 2010 - 3:25pm

Minneapolis, MN- Every year North Central University’s community sets aside a week for a more focused spiritual reflection and growth. The annual event, known as Spiritual Life Days has become a regular part of the rich history of spiritual development programming at NCU. This year’s theme was “The Widow” which was revealed on Monday September 27, 2010 and developed throughout the week.

Renowned worship leader Kent Henry served as the featured speaker during the week. For over thirty-five years, Henry’s ministry has been totally devoted to worship leading and training. He has led worship on six of Integrity Music’s Hosanna! recordings, inclu...ding: My Refuge, The Secret Place, and So Close to You. He has also produced 22 of his own worship recordings, including: Captivated, Bulletproof and The Psalm Series.

Henry shared from the heart, with messages based on the biblical passages about widows found in I Kings 17, and Luke 18. These two stories illustrated a great deal of persistence and faithfulness in spite of the desperation hardships and societal challenges that widows faced.

The NCU Community was both inspired and deeply encouraged through the course of the week, which concluded with an extended Chapel service on Thursday, September 30th.
