Several years ago I attended the Alaska Lay School of Theology for two days at St. John United Methodist Church. For a minimal price, I was treated to an incredible study of the parables of Jesus by Alyce McKenzie of Southern Methodist University. My knowledge of the meaning, use, and interpretation of parables was increased during those two days. I urge you to consider taking advantage of this year’s school. Lonnie Brooks, school coordinator, recently shared information about this year’s session.
In cooperation with Perkins School of Theology of Southern Methodist University, the Alaska United Methodist Conference is pleased to offer its Alaska Lay School of Theology for the fourteenth year in succession. This year’s event will be held at the United Methodist Church of Chugiak, which is located on the Old Glenn Highway about a half mile north of its intersection with Birchwood Loop South. The school will feature Professor Sze-Kar Wan teaching from his specialty as a scholar of the Apostle Paul, “Rereading Romans,” and Professor Elaine Heath, who grew up in Wasilla, Alaska, who will teach “A New Kind of Church.”
The school will take place Friday evening, September 17, 2010, and Saturday, September 18, from 8:00am to 4:30pm.
Register before the end of August and the fee for either course is $65.00. Registration at the door is $75.00.
For additional information and to obtain a registration form, please contact Lonnie Brooks, school coordinator, at 907-333-4529.
