C3 Special Focus on Medicine
“I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life”
Using this foundational yet enigmatic self-portrayal of Jesus, Sister Mary Diana will analyze and apply its meaning to the modern-day medical professional. The Divine Physician, the Healer of wounded souls, provides for us a model of professionalism, a teaching on the truths of humanity,
and Himself as the source and sustenance of our being. If the healthcare world itself needs healing,
to Whom should it go?
Saturday Track with Medical Focus
We are thrilled to offer a series of talks and discussion sessions guided toward medical professionals or those with an interest in Courageous Conversations in that field.

We're very excited about C3, March 6-8, 2014.
Our event is focused on having "Courageous Conversations" because there are a number of tough subjects we all tend to avoid in our daily lives. Every person who attends the full experience will take part in interactive teaching to form good communication skills that will strengthen relationships at work, home, and church. Addiction, recovery, urban living and worship, the Gospel and healthcare, the millennial generation and religion...these are just a few of the topics that our speakers will set the table with—then it will be your chance to pull up a chair and learn how to have the courageous conversations that are awaiting you.
We can't wait for you to join the conversation.
Rev. Chris Bowhay
