The Center for Bible, Faith, and Mission (CBFM), a subsidiary organization of the Walla Walla University School of Theology, invites you to its annual retreat, March 14-15, 2008. 

This year’s theme title is, “Ellen White: Myth & Reality,” and will be presented by Dr. George Knight, professor emeritus in church history at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Mich., and Dr. Craig Newborn, senior pastor at Oakwood University Church in Huntsville, Ala.

The retreat takes place at Walla Walla University, and begins at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 14.  Knight will present at the first event of the retreat in the Walla Walla Valley Academy Auditorium, located at 300 South Academy Way in College Place.

Saturday, March 15, boasts five more events to attend.  First, Newborn speaks for both the first and second services at the University Church; FirstServe begins at 9:30 and the second service begins at 11:45.  Afternoon events include Newborn presenting at 3 p.m., and Knight at 4:15, both in the University Church.  A panel discussion will close the retreat at 6 p.m., also in the University Church.

The Center for Bible, Faith, and Mission supports special projects and seminars.  Last year, CBFM held its first annual retreat in Pasco, Wash.  This year they wanted to bring it to the WWU campus. 

“This will be a memorable weekend for all,” says Dave Thomas, dean of WWU’s School of Theology, “particularly as it addresses the current perception of Ellen White and her role and place in Adventism.”

Admission is free, and all events are open to the public.  For more information on this or other School of Theology or CBFM events, call 509-527-2194, or visit www.wallawalla.edu/cbfm.
