The Wisdom of God: Peter Kreeft, professor of Philosophy at Boston College, has written the Three Philosophies of Life which will be our companion guide as we study the three books of the Bible which pose the questions to which the entire Bible provides answers: Ecclesiastes, the meaning of life without God; Job, the preparation for life with God; and Song of Songs, life with God, the real life. All are welcome to join any or all of these classes. C. Coreth

Evangelism: The Ministry of Reconciliation: Every Christian is an ambassador for Christ. We have the privilege of participating in bringing God’s good news that our sin was imputed to Christ while He imputed Christ’s righteousness to us if we confess his Lordship (Philippians 2:9-11). Leon Brown in his book Words in Season provides an encouraging, common-sense, flexible approach to personal evangelism. Sensitive to believers’ struggles and concerns about sharing the gospel, Pastor Brown provides a practical guide that assists readers to overcome their reluctance to proclaim the Good News to the lost. “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, ‘not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.” 2 Corinthians 5:17-19. L. Allen

The adult class on evangelism led by L. Allen began On Sunday, January 10. We are using Leon Brown’s book, Words in Season, which can be purchased at Amazon. All are welcome.
