We will also hear from Lori Sealy, our speaker and guest musician. Lunch will be provided following our time together. Child care is provided particularly for our out of town guests.

Who is our speaker? LORI SEALY is daily amazed at the grace of God that has been poured out in her life, as well as by the all-wise hand of His providence that has carved her every step - including the really hard steps. Nearly aborted, graciously adopted, and later abandoned, Lori has traveled the road of atheism and lived a life of autism. Along the way she's wrestled deeply with doubt, and through that wrestling has learned to rest in the precious promises of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through all the ups and downs of her journey - the "many dangers, toils, and snares" - she has found Christ faithful, even when she's been faithless and has seen the sovereign mercy of her God form hope out of hopelessness and grant light even in the deepest darkness.
Lori began playing piano at the age of 5 and was classically trained until the age of 20. At age 10 she started writing her first songs - creating compositions that fell eclectically along folk, jazz, classical, rock, and electronic genres. Growing up in South Carolina, Lori now lives in Cullowhee, North Carolina, with her husband of 23 years, Phillip Sealy. Phillip is the pastor of Redeemer Church (PCA) in Sylva, North Carolina. The Sealys have two children, Joshua (15) and Elizabeth (13). Joshua and Lori both live with autism.
