Pastor’s Corner: How Did We Do This?

August 10, 2022 Sunday School formally resumes meeting this coming Sunday, August 14, after over two years of sporadic gatherings and Zoom. It’s very exciting!

Like many prophets, Jesus got frustrated and cranky. Can we read both the frustrations of God and God’s blessings in the world?
