A Promise For the Journey (Based on Hebrews 4: 12-16)
Though we are not perfect, a Perfect Love leads us on.
Though we are not whole, we are wholly the children of a Living God.
Though we will never be fully grown, when we groan our groans reach a Heart of Mercy.
Pastor Tanner will be our preacher on Sunday. Her sermon will be “Rethinking What We Want.” The central Scripture will be Mark 10: 35-45.
