Event Details

Join us as Professor Marion Taylor explores the significance of the final chapter of a book that provides us with an exciting vision of how individuals and communities should imitate God’s inclusive care for outsiders of all kinds - a vision Jesus enacted and expected his followers to embrace. The book of Ruth truly can be called the gospel of Ruth- a gospel that proclaims good news to women and men and calls us all to bring the good news to the world.

At the breakfast, also hear personal stories from women students at Wycliffe College about their calling, journey, and spiritual growth.

To register for this free women's breakfast, contact Gillian Arnold at 416-946-3535 ext. 2559 or garnold@wycliffe.utoronto.ca. Or click here to register online.
