When and What I’m Teaching at Nav Night in Fall 2012

Each semester I teach at one or more Nav Night meetings for the FSU Navigators. This semester is no exception. I wanted to post the details of my upcoming talks so you could be praying for me as I prepare.

  • On Wednesday, October 10 I’m teaching on identity in Christ. I’ve taught this topic more than any other: four times at previous Nav Nights (one was recorded), once at a conference, and once at a men’s retreat. It’s been since April 2011 that I’ve intensely studied the topic in preparation for teaching it, so even though I’m pretty comfortable with the material I’m still going to need to brush up on it. Plus I’d like to add in some new thoughts just to keep things fresh for the older students you have heard me speak on this before.
  • On Wednesday, November 14 I get to speak about finding rest. I am very excited to take on this subject, and not just because I’ve never taught specifically on it before. You’ll remember that in January when I gave two talks on idolatry it was especially satisfying for me because God had been teaching me about idols in my life all throughout 2011. Similarly, this year God has been teaching me all about rest. To be able to teach others what I’ve been learning is a real privilege. (This is when it really helps to be great friends with the campus director. He knew I’d love this topic.)

Even though I love what I’m doing with the Florida Navs website this semester I still enjoy teaching at Nav Night more than anything else I do with The Navigators. I can’t wait for these two nights! To think, the first one is less than a month away already.

If you’d like to attend either of these you can. They’ll be in HCB 316. I only have one stipulation. No matter who you are, if you attend one of my talks I expect you to socialize with some of the students there. No one can be a spectator. I hope to see you there.
