We are excited to welcome back Dr. Jim Childs to teach Wednesday nights, 6:30 PM on the Beatitudes. The Beatitudes are among Jesus’ best known sayings. They give shape to the witness of Christian love in a world of conflict and suffering.

March 11: Poverty of Spirit (Mt. 5:3)

March 18: Solidarity in Suffering (Mt. 5:4)

March 25: Mercy and Peace (Mt. 5:7 & 5:9)

He is a faithful worshiper as well  at Epiphany Lutheran Church, Pickerington.  Be sure to make these weekly classes a part of your Lenten journey.
