6:30-9:30pm Liberating Presence: Being and Receiving Christ in Human Relationships.
Presenter: Doug Frank. The seminar will explore how the freedom to be present grows out of a particular understanding of the life and death of Jesus. We will try to understand why liberating presence is so difficult to achieve, and how we might learn to practice it more effectively. If you are a parent, pastor, teacher, advocate, activist, or someone who simply desires more authentic, quality encounters with others… please join us for an evening of ideas, dialogue and discussion!

1-5 pm Learning to Question: Finding insight into Biblical texts and life stories
Presenter: Doug Frank. Finding insight into Biblical texts and life stories. The key to an effective Bible Study, group discussion or one-on-one counseling experience is knowing how to ask the right questions. Biblical texts and people’s life stories can come alive when approached with honest, insightful and creative questions. We will explore ways to grow in our ability to ask questions of people and of a text, whether for our own personal study or in the context of group discussion and Bible study.
Location: The People’s Seminary, 102 N. Pine Street, Burlington, WA 98233
