The Apostle’s Tale — Series Overview

Seventh Sunday After Pentecost, Year A

As we come into the second week of our series, we move from the freedom we have found in Christ to confront our differences head-on, and God’s call to welcome all of God’s children, to dealing with the way things are: the sufferings of the present time.

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
