Gospel of Luke

TAKING THAT BULL BY THE HORNS:

A PUBLIC READING OF THE

BOOK OF LUKE

FEBRUARY 2nd – 9 a.m.


We’ll read it ALOUD and TOGETHER, the way it was originally intended—not broken up into sections, not silently. Yes, this will be different…but it will be good: for together, we will bear witness to the forgiving of sin, the mending of ways, the curing of the sick...even the raising of the dead. Not a bad way to spend a Saturday morning!

 

In this time of making New Year’s resolutions, consider a renewed commitment to be nudged and nurtured, to be rooted and grow in the Word, specifically, the “Word of God, Word of Life” according to Luke, the entire chapter.
