Pastor Wes is offering a new Adult Education opportunity. Mark your calendars for Thursday evenings, August 28, September 4 and 11, from 6:30-8 p.m. in our Chapel. The title is "Making Sense of Scripture" based on the book by the same name by David Lose. You do not need to read the book to participate in the class. The class is designed to help you understand how you approach Scripture and the alternative ways others approach Scripture.
Dr. Lose was one of Pastor Wes' professors at Luther Seminary during his doctorate work. He maintains a blog (http://www.davidlose.net/) if you would like to familiarize yourself with his writings and style. See you, along with your fellow members, starting August 28.
