Last Sunday we began the "Confronting the Controversies" series with Amy facilitating a discussion on the Death Penalty. We had a great discussion and many great points and views were shared among the class. This week we will continue the series with a discussion on homosexuality.
For those who don't know, this lesson series is backed by a book and DVD prepared by Adam Hamilton (who is the pastor of a large UM church in Kansas). The materials provide insight into both sides of each controversial topic (7 in total) and talks about where the Bible stands on the issue and does not try to referee who is wrong or right. Feedback on the series and whether the class members enjoy the topics is definitely encouraged & just as a reminder we are not planning to do this series exclusively over the next few months - we could probably use a break from heavy issues every once in awhile.
Joy of the week - Brad & Kristin Shipman joined the church on Sunday! We are on a two-week streak of having someone from our class joining the church!!
Have a great week and see you on Sunday!
