What You'll Discover in this Episode:
We are joined by special guest Dr. Howard A. Eyrich for Part 2 of an interview with the biblical counseling pioneer. Today’s discussion will cover the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC) Conference which is scheduled for August 1st-3rd, 2019 in St. Louis, Missouri. The theme this year is HOPE. Learn more about the IABC Annual Conference here.
Dr. Eyrich and other board members chose this year’s theme of HOPE for several different reasons. First, because many members of the board, including Dr. Eyrich, were working through difficult issues in the organization. Secondly, the dealing of the daily work as a biblical counselor, and finally countering people who were dealing with difficult times in their lives. This is the theme of Apostle Peter riding to his flock in a great time of persecution. This year’s conference is a reiteration of this wondrous hope and the sharing of tools that the counselor can use to help the counselee implement Hope in various dimensions of their lives to develop godly patterns in their lives - day by day.
Dr. Eyrich believes the book of Ezekiel yields the following 5 recurring Themes:
- A persistent display of the character of God.
- A personal wickedness of the people of God
- A professional weakness of the Religious Leaders
- A particularized judgement of God
- A perpetual HOPE.
