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 (scholarships available). Pre-registration required.
NOTE: Dr. Raining will also offer a guest sermon at the 9 and 11 a.m. services on Sunday, August 21.
