Special Feature


Are you struggling with finding hope and peace? There are two opportunities to hear encouragement from best-selling author Susan Alexander Yates- while helping provide scholarship funds with Samford University’s Legacy League. On February 11 Yates will be in Birmingham to speak mid-day and in the evening on being anchored in hope and finding peace amidst uncertainty.

The first event Yates will speak at is the Samford Legacy League Scholarship Luncheon at a country club in Vestavia from 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. “Anchored in Hope: Finding Wisdom for Every Season” is her topic. “We are living in such a turbulent season- all of us. I’ll be sharing four keys to finding hope during this season,” Yates reflects, adding, “We are all in the turbulent season, yet each one of us is in a unique season.”

“Finding Peace in Times of Uncertainty” is the topic Yates will explore during the Evening Program at Covenant Presbyterian Church from 7-8 p.m. “I’m going to share two surprising concepts that will enable us to go deeper into our walk with the Lord,” Yates says. Psalm 146:5 tells us, Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit.” Yates digs into the promise of this verse. “While it sounds very nice that Jesus understands, what does that mean pragmatically?” Guests will also hear her speak on how our view of God should be bigger than any problem we face. “As we focus on Him- our issues won’t go away because we are fallen people in a fallen world- but they can assume their more proper place than overwhelming us,” Yates says.
