Lenten Journey PDF Print E-mail

Have you ever wondered: Why did Jesus die?  Did Jesus have to die? Does Jesus (or God) save us? If so, what do we need to be saved from and how does salvation "work"? What, if anything, does the cross have to do with it? What's the result of salvation? What does it look and feel like? What's our role in it? We'll dive headlong into these questions in Lent and hopefully figure out not only what we don't believe but also become better able to articulate what we do believe.

Grandview Readers PDF Print E-mail

On Friday March 23, beginning with a potluck meal at 6pm, the Grandview Readers will discuss Living Into Hope: A Call for Spiritual Action for Such a Time as This by Joan Brown Campbell.
