If you are interested in exploring further, join the conversation about the book “Help! My Bible is Alive!” and explore some of the particulars of how Lutheran Christians read the bible.  All are welcome to this conversation, hosted by John & Melanie Owen in the 130’s from 10-10:40 am in between worship services each Sunday.  Child care is available!
