Children of Our Parents, Children of God

7:00PM – 9:00PM

We can’t truly understand ourselves apart from seeing how we reflect our parents. Yet, our development involves differentiating ourselves from them. In this presentation, Rev. Dr. Mark Lawson will examine this truth, and then look to the gospels for clues about how Jesus grew in his own self-understanding, differentiating himself from his own earthly family in order to mature into his identity as Son of God. This evening of renewal will help participants gain a deeper understanding of their lives, as children not only of earthly parents, but more essentially, as children of God.

Mark holds a PhD in New Testament, and is the pastor of United Church of Christ in Bayberry, a staff spiritual director here at the Center, and an adjunct faculty member in the religious studies department at Le Moyne College.
