Things Jesus Didn’t Say Continues Sunday

Things Jesus Didn’t Say • Sunday, September 30

This Sunday’s “Things Jesus Didn’t Say” is “Because The Bible Says So”. If you know or love somebody who has been clobbered with bible verses about who they are, who they love, what big questions they have about science/life/faith this is a good week to invite them! How do we value the bible without being rigid and closed minded in our reading of it? We are going to talk about it.
