For the Month of January, we will be trying out a new program called “The Wired Word.” This web-based study looks at current events and reflects on them through the lens of scripture. Participants will be given access to the articles and reflections one week in advance. To be added to this distribution list, contact Becky D’Angelo-Veitch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
