Exploring the Wisdom of the Gospels


Saturday, October 12, 2019

8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Rev. Bill Redfield

Among the various titles given Jesus is “Wisdom Master.” An exploration of the Gospels Wisdom Parables will give us an understanding of what this title might imply. Using a Lectio Divina approach, we will unpack such parables as the Laborers in the Field, the Parable of the Talents, and others. You will end the day appreciating Jesus as “Wisdom Master” and with a method that gives the Gospels a living meaning.

Offering: $65, includes lunch
