Plans for Lenten Study
From Birth to Resurrection in the Gospel of Luke, Jesus came to lift up the lowly. Throughout his ministry to his final days on the road to the cross, we find stories of his relationships with ordinary, flawed, and unexpected people. He met, dined, and
traveled with people who were not perfect. Many of them were struggling, some were outsiders or even outlaws. Whoever they were, from those he healed to the outlaws with him at his crucifixion, Jesus brought the good news of God's kingdom to those who most needed to hear it.
In Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton explores the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke. Through Luke's stories, we find Jesus' care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts. As we study Luke and see Jesus' concern for those who
were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring words for our lives today.
The study books will be ordered soon. They are $11.49 each and can be picked up from the office when they arrive. We will be sure to let you know when.
May this study help you to participate in a journey of renewal and restoration during the coming Lenten season.
