The Colson Center National Conference is a gathering of people who want to be faithful in the time and place God has called them. Times like these require courage. As Tolkien once observed, we may wish we had lived to see different times, but wishful hoping is not a strategy. The real challenge is what we will do with the time we’ve been given and the place we’ve been called to. We can live faithfully right where we are because we know how the Story ends.
