Marriage Enrichment Weekend - Spots still available!
June 8 - 10, 2018 at Pocaterra Inn, Canmore. Marriage Enrichment is a positive, personal experience for couples to learn a technique of loving communication that can be used for the rest of their lives. It is a time when a couple can be alone together, free from distractions, to share their hopes, joys, fears and frustrations. The weekend allows a couple to discover the personal strengths in their relationship that will enable them to look to the future with courage. It is a common sense approach that helps couples see where their relationship could be through communication. Marriage Enrichment is not a retreat, marriage counselling, or sensitivity course. Cost: $300.00/couple. For more information about this weekend in Canmore, go to www.CrossRoadsChurch.ca/marriage.

Truth Is Not Plural: A Defense Against the Exclusive Pluralism of John Hick by Conrad Neudorf is a nonfiction book of Christian theology written to help Christians and theologians engage with questions about religious pluralism as we live in an increasingly global and religiously diverse world. This informative theological book addresses a variety of topics that confirm Christian faith in Jesus Christ as the only way to God, including salvation, the divinity of Jesus, perspectives in world religions, teachings in church history, and Christian doctrine. Readers with questions like “What is pluralism?”, “Is Christianity the only true religion?” and, “Can non-Christians be saved?” will find this book to be an enlightening guide written with authority and expertise.
