Friday, April 28, 2017 Opening seminar 7:30-9pm Saturday, April 29, 2017 Morning session: 9:30am-noon Afternoon session: 1:30-4pm Brooks-Howell Home is partnering with Jesus Seminar on the Road program to look at the surprising history behind one of Christian history's most controversial figures, Mary Magdalene, led by guest scholars Shelly Matthews of Brite Divinity School and Perry Kea of the University of Indianapolis. The program kicks off with a lecture on Friday, April 28th, 7:30-9pm and continues on Saturday, April 29th, with a series of daytime sessions 9:30am-4pm. Much attention has been given to the historical Jesus of Nazareth, but what about the historical Mary of Magdala? In the rise of Christianity, some held that Mary was the person closest to Jesus, that she was a true Apostle, and that her understanding of the gospel was an authentic path of knowledge. Join us for this informative event exploring Mary's role as prophet and emissary of the kingdom of God. All sessions take place at Brooks-Howell Home, 266 Merrimon Ave. Asheville, NC 28801. Continuing Education Units will be offered. Registration for Conference: westarinstitute.org/upcoming-events-calendar/asheville-2017 Overnight lodging at Brooks-Howell Home: Please email Director of Marketing, Cameron Kempson, at [email protected]

Description:
Counterfeit Christianity promises in this life what only heaven will give and hinders spiritual growth by leaving us with shallow optimism or deep frustration. But the true Gospel provides all we need to live with hope, joy, and freedom—and eagerly anticipate eternal glory. Immerse yourself in Colossians to better understand how Jesus Christ Himself is the source of abundant life, no matter what circumstances you face.

Description:
We all recognize the importance of love. But do we know what true love is? What if real joy only results when our love is modeled after Christ’s sacrificial care for others? Jesus loved those who didn’t deserve it, even after they rejected Him. That includes us. Loving like Jesus means loving people while they sin—even when they sin against us—not loving them more when they are victorious over a sin. It’s unconditional. Come explore Scripture and invite the light of Jesus to shine through your relationships. Return home with a vision to love like Him, offering—and experiencing—the deepest fulfillment!

In God’s Word, the Apostle Paul gives us clear instructions about how we are to carry on the unfinished work that the Lord has for us. Come better understand the point of following Christ—why the church exists, why you are here, and what He wants you to do. Learn how to respond to discouragement, avoid bitterness, and be confident that God will “never leave you nor forsake you” (Hebrews 13:15, NKJV). March on and do more for God than you’ve done for Him in the past—not because of who you are, but because of Whose you are.
