SUNCOAST MCC NEWS FOR THE WEEK OF JULY 17, 2019
"We Live, We Love: Leaving Home"
Rev. Vickie Miller
Sun. | Jul. 21 | 10AM
Our summer worship series from the book of Genesis is about the struggles, connections and disconnections inherent in our human-divine stories of love. Starting with the Garden of Eden, leaving home is sometimes necessary. What does it mean when our sense of “home” shifts for whatever reason? The Eden story can also speak to our separation from God and help us to reflect on our own awareness of good and evil.
(More information about this series follows).
