Hey, Grace’rs,

18 years ago today the world was rocked by acts of hatred and terrorism against the US. As we remember that horrific moment, the lives lost, and the countless and nameless heroes who sacrificed their lives to rescue as many as possible, let’s not only pray for an end to the violence, but recommit ourselves to follow Jesus on the path of transforming, hate-banishing grace. 

This weekend, as we continue our series, Christianity 101, we look at why God seems to be so crabby—and violent—especially in the Old Testament.  A timely topic in light of 9/11.

Families with last names starting with L-R have the food table this weekend.

And… You can worship and still enjoy your Sunday football:
If you missed last week’s message on why the Bible was written, you can view it here.
