SUNDAY SCHOOL TODAY! Church school classes today for all ages.  All young people from pre-school through High School begin in the chapel at 9 am with music and prayer before going to their classrooms.  Adult meet in the Parish Hall for the Adult forum at 9:10 am.  IN THE ADULT FORUM this week, Fr. Dale in the final session on N.T. Wright‘s Apologetics, his defense of the truth of the faith in Jesus as Incarnate God will present concluding thoughts on this subject at the Adult Forum at 9:15. Wright states in ways that get back to Paul’s Epistles (from 50AD) to Acts of the Apostles 17, that the God we worship is the God who raised Jesus from the dead, and the same as the God who brought Israel out of slavery in Egypt. This is the God who promises eternal life!
