Love Over… with Tim and Paula Castner and Katherine Clark (Room 102, begins January 12, 2020):
What does God expect of us in a politically, socially, theologically, culturally, racially, sexually, and economically polarized world? How do multiple generations of Christians with differing views on these spheres come together to share God’s love with the world? How does fear prevent us from being the hands and feet of Christ to and in a hurting world? Join us as we use both Scripture and Dan White Jr.’s book Love Over Fear to discuss these topics and more in a welcoming and supportive environment.
