Come join Keren Hannah Pryor and James C. Whitman on a unique learning adventure entitled, The Feasts and the Family: Understanding the Biblical Festivals and Their Application in a Modern Context.
A Hebraic renewal is occurring in the Church today. Believers are being re-introduced to the Old Testament as the Bible of Jesus. In this weekend seminar, co-taught by
Keren & James, you'll gain insight into the Cycle of the Fall Feasts.
We will explore the sources, the symbolism and meaning inherent in each of these biblical festivals and how they reflect the Father heart of God.
In addition, we'll share many practical ideas on how to implement the principles and celebrate the Feasts in ways that can deepen the discipleship experience in your heart, your home and your house of worship.
