Public Lecture with Dr. Marty Mittelstadt
May 22, 7:00 pm at Living Waters Church, 9095 Glover Road, Fort Langley, BC.
"Reading Luke-Acts in the Pentecostal Tradition"
Pentecostals not only took their theological and experiential cue from the Lukan story, but eventually began to make their mark on the larger Christian community and academy through their biblical theology. Mittelstadt examines the influence of Pentecostal scholars on a range of topics including narrative theology, missiology, healing and exorcism, the role of women in ministry, spiritual formation and other current topics. This lecture is based upon Mittelstadt's research and writing on Luke-Acts.
This conference provides an opportunity for Chaplains, Pastors, and Spiritual Care Givers to enhance their practical ministry skills, deepen their practice of spiritual accompaniment and build a ministry of authentic compassion. The Conference includes several plenary sessions that are outlined in our brochure. These plenary sessions will be led by Dr. Phil Zylla, Academic Dean and Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology at McMaster Divinity College. He has served as Senior Pastor in three congregations in Canada over 18 years. He has been involved in seminary education for the past eleven years. His interests are in the areas of pastoral theology, virtue theory, and pastoral care. Baylor University Press published his most recent book, The Roots of Sorrow: A Pastoral Theology of Suffering in 2012.

Would you like to improve your Hebrew and gain some insight into the relationship between the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament?
Then be sure to join Dr. Rob Hiebert on the third Wednesday of every month for עברית בבקר (Hebrew in the Morning). You will be treated to an Israeli breakfast (e.g., pita, hummus, tahini, salad, fruit) and will read a selected text from the Hebrew Old Testament. Besides helping one another gain confidence in reading and translating Hebrew, participants will also reflect on how these texts are appropriated in the New Testament (typically via the Septuagint). All are welcome (even those whose Hebrew is on life support). Some knowledge of Greek will be helpful, though not essential. To Register visit Susan Mattam in the Trinity Western Seminary Suite (upstairs Fosmark). Be sure to bring the registration fee with you in an envelope (Include your name and email) .

Join a group of people engaging with the Greek New Testament and in a non-credit context advance their understanding of New Testament Greek. We read about 5 – 7 verses per meeting and take our time to discuss the Greek structure, specific words, and the general meaning of the text in relation to the overall composition. This Spring we will be reading in 1 Timothy. I provide a commentary on the Greek text that you can use to prepare for the sessions. The degree of your interaction in the sessions is voluntary. I encourage you to come prepared to read some Greek and provide a rough translation of the text into English. Frequently we find ourselves spiritually challenged by our reflections together.
|Location:||Fosmark Centre (Room 130/131)|
|Cost:||$30 (includes breakfast and handouts)|
