Theme: Cast of Characters by Max Lucado
Common people. Story after story marked by scandal, stumble and intrigue. Who are these people? They are the people of the Bible. And they are us. We find our stories in theirs. We find our hope where they find theirs. In the hands of an uncommon God. In the midst of them all...hovering over them all...is the hero of it all: God. Maker. Shaper. Rescurer of sinking hearts. God. Passing out high callings, second chances, and moral compasses to all comers and takers.
Teacher: Dan King
Theme: "Romans 1-7 for You" by Tim Keller
