I had the privilege of being asked to speak at the annual Women's Retreat I attend through Rocky Mountain Calvary, Women of Calvary. The theme was Pursuing Holiness, based on the book, Pursuit of Holiness, by Jerry Bridges. The previous several posts were my notes as I was reading the book. Below is the final presentation talking points and slide content. This isn't a transcript of what was actually said, but the raw notes of what I planned to say.

I thought I would capture my thoughts here, in lieu of my Old Testament posts. This is not meant as a coherent narrative or review of the book; but quotations, excerpts, and my thoughts as I read the text. A written highlight reel and my commentary on the highlights.
