Mary Magdalene: A Tower of Lineage—A Saturday Gathering with The Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining

with No Comments

SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 2022, 9:30 A.M.–2:30 P.M., in person in Bloedel Hall or online via Zoom; registration required

A Saturday gathering led by The Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining

Mary Magdalene has rightly been called “the Apostle to the Apostles” because of her important witness to the life, ministry, and resurrection of Jesus. However, few people today truly understand the sheer magnitude of her contribution to the Jesus movement itself. Recent scholarship counts her as one of the shapers of many of the rites and rituals of Christianity thanks to her deep firsthand knowledge of Jesus’ healing ministry. Indeed, she is often called “The Magdala” or “The Tower” by those who understand her to be the lineage-bearer of some of Jesus’s most important teachings on healing, anointing, exorcism, and giving witness.

Join this engaging workshop, in which The Rev. Dr. Hillary Raining, Saint Mark’s 2022 Theologian-in-Residence will share some of the latest research on Mary Magdalene’s lasting impact and engage in spiritual healing practices based on her towering lineage.

Fee $35 (for both online and in-person participants). Includes a light lunch and snacks for those participating in person (scholarships available). Pre-registration required.

Register by filling out the form below or here. Participants in previous forums with Dr. Raining said, “She is an engaging teacher, warm, and accessible” and “she shares vital information for personal healing that then translates into community healing.” Contact Canon Barrie at wbarrie@saintmarks.org with any questions.

NOTE: Dr. Raining will also offer a guest sermon at the 9 and 11 a.m. services on Sunday, August 21.
