This day event will feature reflections about Paul Young's The Shack offered by Brad Jersak (PhD). We will explore ways that The Shack presents the Trinitarian God, addresses and heals oppressive images of God, replacing them with the Cruciform God of the Gospels and early church fathers. We will also address hot-button topics such as God’s love, wrath, and the problem of suffering.
Time: 10AM - 1PM
Location: Saint John Vineyard, 204 Carmarthen Street, Saint John NB
