“How Are We to Interpret the Bible?” When there are so many contradictory readings and interpretations of the Bible, how can we know what God’s Word is saying to us? That’s the question we will wrestle with this Sunday as Jesus invites us to hear and receive Him as the Living Word. Our Scripture readings are from John 5:36-47 and 2 Timothy 3:14-16.
The Altar Flowers are given in celebration of Jon and Kitty Braun's 5th Anniversary!
