The Fabric of Faith: Learning from the Women of the New Testament
Sixth Joan and Aubrey Gearner Seminar
Saturday, March 11, 2017 — 9:00 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.
Northway Christian Church, Dallas, TX
Lots of women appear in the New Testament. Some are named individuals (Syntyche, Lois, Mary Magdalene); others are not. Some are celebrated disciples (the Samaritan woman), apostles (Junia), deacons and ministers (Phoebe)–vocal proponents of our faith. Others teach wisdom by example through their actions. We hear about individual women but also groups of women, like the widows of 1 Timothy or the female Corinthian prophets. While most of the women are real, some are figurative (the woman clothed with the sun; the whore of Babylon). How might we encounter Jesus by spending time with some of these characters? What word might they have for ourselves and for our communities? Come renew your acquaintance with or meet these women for the first time!
