PCS announces new course beginning on June 2, 2020: Mary Magdalene Revealed: The First Apostle, Her Feminist Gospel & the Christianity We Haven’t Tried Yet

Register Now!

The purpose of this course is to provide a reflection and discussion on the seven powers presented in the Gospel of Mary, the only gospel that was written in the name of a woman. The seven powers are sources of spiritual growth and ministerial transformation. This Gospel reveals a radical love that sits at the heart of the Christian story. Her teaching is that we are not sinful; we are not to feel ashamed or unworthy for being human. In fact, our purpose is to be fully human, to be a "true human being.”



COURSE OBJECTIVE(S)
Students will write refection papers or projects based on the seven powers from the Gospel of Mary of Magdala as stages for personal and ministerial transformation.
