How do you see God?  Do you see Him as a Security Guard at the gates of heaven trying to keep people out?  Many people do.  Or do you see God as doing everything possible to get people into heaven?  Check out Acts 2.22-36, and join us this Sunday.
If you would like to talk further about any of these thoughts, I’d love to get together with you.  Please give me a call.

Spiritual Formation!
  Saturday!
Jesus regularly took his disciples away from the busyness of their routine for a time of rest and renewal. Every third Saturday of the month we’ll gather for a focused time of prayer and reflection. Carve time in your busy routine to join Jesus and his friends for a few hours of respite and recharging. The theme is waiting, each month we’ll focus on a different promise we long to see fulfilled. Third Saturday, 9-noon, $20 per session. With you in the journey,  Debby Bellingham  debbybell@comcast.net>,
