Biblical Sabbath & Christian Sunday - Weekned Course - April 13-14, 2007

This is the time when we in the Christian church reflect upon the impact of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ and the Lord's Day which commemorates it. Why we celebrate the Lord's day and not the Sabbath? What is the essence of Biblical Sabbath? Why the Adventists and others accuse us catholics of changing Sabbath into Sunday? What did we retain in the celebration of the Lord's Day from the Biblical Sabath?

Thses and many more quastions will be answered at the Weekend workshop on "Biblical Sabbath & Christian Sunday"
