Confounding Discipleship: The Strangeness of God’s Gifts and Expectations
During the fall of 2020, we will be engaging texts and stories from Matthew’s gospel, exploring together the richness and mystery of both the grace God offers and the life of discipleship God invites. The gifts are abundant. The expectations are bracing and full of promise. Join us as we attend to God’s strange and wonderful assurances, as well as to what it means to live a full and faith-filled life.
