Its all about Life-to-Life
We are to cultivate opportunities to teach others all that our Lord has commanded—to pass on the gospel witness of the apostles.  Do we have confidence that we can do it?  Jesus thought so, or He would not have gathered us together and put is here where we are.  He would not have called us as he has.

their many gifts.  See you Sunday,
