Immigration is loving your neighbor?
Last week, Anna Cushman presented an update on immigration issues on the  CBFNC webinar . Immigration is a polarizing issue in our country and in other countries. This is not a 21st-century issue, however. Moses was an immigrant who was given asylum in Pharaoh's home! Learn how to relate with our neighbors who are struggling to make a new life in our country. How can we be hospitable and of practical help? Great information and  resources
 from a knowledgeable attorney! Anna Cushman is the Faith Community Liaison for the American Immigration Lawyers Association. She lives in Charlotte.
Archaeology and the Bible: Friend or Foe?
April 30 | 11:00 a.m. to noon
Register here !
 “Biblical archaeology” emerged in the 20th century as an effort to prove that biblical places, people, and stories were true. Archaeologists in Israel are now more concerned with understanding the cultures of ancient peoples. Does archaeology confirm the biblical narratives, or does evidence in the ground suggest that they don't match up? Tony Cartledge is a professor of Old Testament, Campbell University School of Divinity, and the curriculum writer for Nurturing Faith Journal and Bible Studies.
