This presentation is for anyone who wants to know Mary better – the real, human Mary of the Bible and the profound interior journey of faith she made throughout her life.

Dr. Sri take the audience on a will walk with Mary step-by-step from Nazareth to the Cross and consider how she faced moments of joy and thanksgiving, moments of uncertainty and discernment, as well as moments of trial and darkness. And yet at every critical point she responded with greater trust and surrender in ways that offer many practical insights for our own paths of Christian discipleship today.

In this presentation, Dr. Edward Sri will help us carry the Year of Faith forward as he draws on themes from his newest book,Walking with Mary: A Biblical Journey from Nazareth to the Cross, which will be available for purchase that night.
