onWORD Conference adds Art Exhibit
The 8th annual onWORD Conference has added a new element for 2017: an art exhibit. Artists are contributing works that are related to our theme as a way for us to reflect and engage with our theme. These works of art will be available for sale through a silent auction.
Another highlight of the conference will be a first-century feast, complete with specially-sourced ancient ingredients. This is a fun opportunity for those who want to really understand and experience the culture and setting of this story.
Dr. Randal Rauser Publishes New Book on Grace
Taylor's Dr. Randal Rauser has published a new book, one that explores the strangely-confusing nature of grace. It's a book that Dr. Eric Seibert of Messiah College calls "smartly written and wonderfully honest" and which Dr. John Stackhouse promises to purchase "to give to relatives, friends, students—even my own sons."
