“Faith Posture #4: Compassion”
Rev. Matthew D. Randolph
PREPARING FOR LENT
The New American Oxford Dictionary secondly defines the word posture as: “a particular way of dealing with or considering something; an approach or attitude.” For the first five Sundays in Lent, we will be exploring different postures of our faith… how we approach different aspects of our faith and how we might apply them to our Christian witness.
March 26th - Compassion
April 2nd - Hope
Lenten Series continues today, March 26, with a potluck at 5:30 p.m., followed by a study based on Adam Hamilton’s program called “When Christians Get It Wrong.” This is a six-session, video-based program, which is an adult focused study on the church’s witness in the midst of difficult subjects. We will continue this study April 2 & 9.
