Some more explanation if you just left the 9:00 service and preparation for those who are going to the 11:15.

Living the Questions 
10:15 - 11:00 a.m. 
Conference Room 

Living the Questions offers participants a way to explore ways to apply scripture and tradition to everyday life and current events. Class discussion is encouraged, but not required for those who choose to listen.

Why do bad things happen to good people? Are the bad things God's will? When we recite "...thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven..."What do we mean? If you are interested in the answer to these and other questions, ALL are invited to join Living the Questions at 10:15 am in the Conference room beginning November 3 for a 5 week study based on the book the "The Will of God" by Leslie Weatherhead and facilitated by Sandy Miller Hays.
