FRIENDS OF GOD AND PROPHETS The Biblical Foundations of Friendship

Friday – 6:30-8:30 p.m. – Saturday – 9:00-11:00 a.m. and 1:00-3:00 p.m.
Laurie Brink, O.P., Ph.D.
“Friends of God and Prophets: The Biblical Foundations of Friendship” makes two extraordinary claims: that our life’s ultimate goal is friendship with God and that the Scriptures provide the roadmap. Friendship with
God is a gift of Holy Wisdom (Wis 7:27). God speaks to Moses face to face as one speaks to a friend (Exod
33:11). And most striking of all these biblical examples, Jesus calls his own disciples “friends” (John 15:15). This program engages a dynamic process that integrates personal experience with biblical study in order to trace the emerging theology of friendship in the Scriptures and to show us how we can become “friends of God and prophets.” $30.00 includes all three sessions. Register by Friday, October 7.
