Arden Wood  – San Francisco

Arden Wood, San Francisco CA

September 15th, 16th (Friday night, 7 – 9 pm; Saturday 9 – 4)

Bible Workshop Weekend

Exploring Heavenly Visions: Unpacking Daniel & Revelation

A new 3-part Bible workshop given by Madelon Maupin
Dates: Friday, September 15 – Saturday, September 16, 2017

Times: Seminar 1: Friday 7:00 – 9:00 PM
Seminar 2: Saturday 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Seminar 3: Saturday 1:30 – 4:30 PM

Location: Arden Wood Chapel, 445 Wawona Street, CA 94116

 

Register early!* Registration for these workshops is first-come-first-served, and overnight accommodations are limited. Full payment secures your spot – we will not be accepting walk-ins. Please register by August 31. Thank you!

*There is only 1 double room left!! Single rooms are SOLD OUT :) Please call if you would like to be added to our waiting list for a room: (415) 379-2104

 

Seminar 1 Daniel

We will examine the loved ‘hero’ stories of Daniel, but we’ll focus primarily on the latter half of the book, which steps into the unusual space of cosmic battles, combative angels and beasts. What does it all mean and what was the author trying to communicate? Most important, how can we apply these visions to our 21st century lives?

 

Seminars 2 & 3 Revelation

We will launch into the New Testament’s final book, Revelation, which is filled with coded language and veiled allusions to kingdoms both of this world and beyond. In order to better unpack its intended purpose, we’ll examine authorship and when the book might have been written. By exploring the historical, political, social, religious and cultural practices, we begin to see the meaning of so many Old Testament allusions and prophesy that fill its chapters. Then we have an informed basis to pull the text forward to see how its patterns apply to Christians today – both collectively and individually.

 

Why not make it a full weekend event?! We’d love to have you come early for dinner Friday night and stay after the workshops on Saturday for a BBQ and ice cream social. We’re also offering tours of Arden Wood and transportation to church Sunday morning. Overnight accommodations and seminar pricing packages are available. We hope to see you in mid-September!

CedarS Camps Bible Study:  “Revelation”    – FULL as of May 12, 2017.  Call for waiting list only.

October 19-23, 2017

Revelation image

Price: $500-$650 (depending upon housing selection)
Enroll Online: Click here to enroll online

Studying the New Testament’s final book, Revelation, might remind one of Dorothy’s famous line in The Wizard of Oz, “Toto, I’ve got a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore!”  A surface reading reveals strange imagery and veiled language, a style so distinct from the New Testament’s other books, and possibly why some have avoided its deeper exploration.

Yet this is why Revelation is so vital to study and why it will be the subject of our four-day Bible Study deep dive in October, 2017, at the beautiful Cedars Camps in Missouri.

We will look at the book’s historical context, why it was written, when and by whom and what the apocalyptic style of writing includes.  By understanding the book’s structure, what specifically the Holy Spirit speaks to the seven churches, how they represent states of thought, what some of the symbols such as seals, trumpets and bowls, etc. might represent, we begin to dig below its surface to find its many spiritual gems.

While Revelation is filled with prophesy, it is a book written to the people of God to both resist and endure during tremendously challenging times.  We have only to look at the persecutions of Christians in much of the world to realize its continuing relevance and how, regardless of where one lives, our faith can be deeply tested today.  Revelation speaks to these very contemporary challenges and we’ll learn how to pull its lessons forward to our own lives and time.

The class will be limited in size and we encourage those interested to sign up soon.  Participants will receive a workbook on arrival with study questions and a place to organize notes.  A first assignment will be emailed to participants two weeks prior to the session.

Housing Selection:  Stay in a single, shared, or triple/quad room with a private bathroom. Enjoy camp activities during free time and great meals.

Single air conditioned room.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . … $650 /per person
Double air conditioned room . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .$550 /per person
Triple/Quad air conditioned room . . . . . . . . . . . ..$500 /per person

All housing prices include meals, snacks, meeting rooms, activities, and course materials.  Linens are included with all housing arrangements.

Shuttle service is available to and from the St. Louis and Springfield, MO airports for $40/person each way. The STL shuttle will depart for CedarS at 2:00 p.m. and return in time for 2:00 p.m. or later flights.   The Springfield, MO shuttle will depart at 3:00 p.m. and return in time for noon or later flights.  Please send us your itinerary when you book your flights.

Principia College Summer Session

June 18-23rd, 2017

“Matthew’s Gospel: The How-To Manual for Building Faith Communities Then and Now”

     Rembrandt’s “Matthew and the Angel”

Have you ever wondered why Matthew’s Gospel leads the canon in telling the story of Christ Jesus, even though it wasn’t the first gospel written? Early Christians found its clear teachings and organized structure compelling as they learned what it meant to be Christian, how to pray, how to treat one another, who should be included in their growing church community, and so on. As a result, it became a treasured favorite. We’ll look at a number of texts, including the Matthew Code and scriptural texts leading up to it that lend fresh insight into its present application. In just five class sessions, you’ll gain a working understanding of this gospel’s uniqueness from the others, as well as new ways you can apply its loved teachings in your life.

Hour Four, 2:15–3:05 p.m., One-week course, Week Two only

Tenacre Bible Study:  Paul the Apostle, Galatians and I Corinthians

May 19th-20th, 2017

Click here to enroll online 

“The Apostle Paul: Model for Transformation and Resolution”, a talk by Madelon Maupin

Friday, May 19, 2017, 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.
Saturday, May 20, 2017, 9:00 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
Paul’s transformation on the Damascus Road set him on a life course that continued for thirty years, sharing the Good News of Christ Jesus with the Gentiles throughout the Roman Empire. How can his life be a model for our own transformation and resolutions to continue sharing and living the teachings of Christ Jesus?

Friday night will be an overview of Paul’s life, including a look at the first document of Christianity, I Thessalonians. Saturday morning we’ll explore Galatians in depth and in the afternoon, investigate I Corinthians. What issues did Paul address in both congregations that are relevant to our church communities today? How do we bring these lessons forward? And what sustained Paul through the many challenges he faced? Bring your questions and insights and we’ll explore these living letters together.

Madelon has a Masters in Theological Studies from San Francisco Theological Seminary, has taught at Principia Summer Session, led numerous Bible study sessions at Adventure Unlimited, taken people to the Middle East and given talks on the Bible around the world. She served as Cultural Historian for Princess Cruises for trips throughout Biblical lands. Her company website, www.BibleRoads.com is filled with resources for both individual and group Bible study, including talks, work-books and online streaming video courses.

The workshop is free of charge. If you wish to have lunch or dinner at Tenacre the cost is $7.50 per meal. Please send payment in the form of a check prior to the date of the workshop to: Tenacre, P.O. Box 632, Princeton, NJ 08542, Attn: Karen Janitz. Tenacre does not accept credit cards.
