HERMENEUTICS
October 20-21, 2016 with Brian Metzger, MMin.
We will cover the principles for studying the Bible with the goal of hearing what the original author wrote under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit. The student will be introduced to the important things interpreters and communities bring to the text. Special attention will be paid to the Biblical narrative contextualizing Biblical exegesis in the contemporary world as the revealed Word of God that shapes and informs contemporary life.

EVANGELISM IN A PLURALISTIC WORLD
October 27-28, 2016 with Merv Budd, MDiv
We will explore what it means to be Christian witnesses in the current Canadian cultural context. We will wrestle with what it means to be living in a post-Christendom, post-modern and pluralistic society. We will explore how we are to bear witness to our culture in this context and how we might engage with other worldviews and beliefs which are at odds with the Christian faith.
