Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled
When she was 17, her mother told her the abortion would only hurt for a little while. But 40 years, 2 sons, and 3 grandkids later, it still hurts. If you or someone you know is grieving the loss of a child to abortion, come and experience the compassionate mercy of Jesus Christ on our weekend retreat. Rachel’s Vineyard Twin Cities’ retreats are open to anyone impacted by abortion – women, men, grandparents, siblings, and health care professionals. The next retreat is March 6-8, 2020 in the Twin Cities area. For more information contact Nancy at[email protected], call 763-250-9313 or see

The Bible and the Modern World:
Believers have always viewed the Bible as the foundation and heart of divine revelation, but in the modern world, there is considerable confusion both about how to interpret the Bible, and also concerning what role it can have in human self-understanding. This lecture will examine the long road from the Bible’s origins and the presuppositions of its ancient interpreters to the debates of the 16th century Reformation and 18th century Enlightenment to the 21st century and the difficult legacy of this long journey. In an age of science, what can the Bible contribute to human knowledge, and within the Church, what challenges are posed by a historical-critical view of the Scriptures? March 5th,  check-in at 6:00 pm, presentation from 6:30-9:00 pm,  Pax Christi Church, Eden Prairie. Free event. Light refreshments provided. Registration is required:, 320-363-3560 or [email protected].
