Come join the conversation! Each week, one of the pastors will reflect upon and ask questions of the focus texts for the upcoming Sunday’s worship. We invite you to read, reflect, and engage. Ask your own questions, or provide your thoughts on ours, in an email to the author if you’d like. Scripture is meant to be engaged in community, as we seek a way toward living our faith.
