As we start to gear up for our Wednesday evening programming – starting Wednesday, September 13 at 5 pm – we want to offer a preview for the Gospel text for the week and an opportunity for you to hear it for the first time. We hope that you will take this opportunity to give it a listen and ask any questions or offer any insights that you might have. Post your thoughts in the comments on Facebook or send an email to Pastor as we wonder aloud together how these texts fit into our lives. You can view this on Facebook or YouTube.
