The Event

Ekerk is excited to present Leonard Sweet as our guest and speaker in South Africa.

Please read underneath for more information on Leonard Sweet and this learning experience:

Len Sweet will be talking the entire morning about his most recent book: Rings of Fire: Walking in Faith through a Volcanic Future.

What Lies Ahead for Christians around the World?

If you follow the works of bestselling authors Malcolm Gladwell, Faith Popcorn, Daniel Pink, and other trend forecasters, you’ll appreciate learning about over 25 rings of fire that lie ahead for Christians around the world. The world of the twenty-second century is a global Ring of Fire. Len Sweet - semiotician, storyteller, and prophetic seer of the future - masterfully helps us to make sense of this new world full of erupting volcanoes. He guides us through all the hot zones and hot topics of our day, and shows us how to embrace this volcanic culture as followers of Jesus. This brilliant and timely book serves as a first responder's manual on a blazing new landscape. It is thé primer for all who desire an eruptive faith, one that keeps up with Jesus while inviting others to God’s fire to get warm. This book will assist and enable the church of the future to walk on lava! No one has done more to startle the church from its slumber than Len Sweet, and no one has equipped the church as effectively. This is a benchmark book from a seminal leader of the modern evangelical movement.

Some of these topics are: Hostile Culture, Chinafication. World Religions, Especially Islam, The Public Square, Tolerance of Diversity, Touting of Unity, Sexularism, Genders and Gendering, Suicide Culture, Ecological Extinctions and Hothouse Home, Genetic Engineering, Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Information Technology, Nanotechnology, Sacralization and Idols, Political Religion.
