Carrying One Another’s Burdens
Greetings Family,

After a much needed break we are ready to continue with the series “Carry One Another’s Burdens”. The classes will be every two weeks on a Saturday morning from 9am to 11am. There are 7 sessions. This series is a transformation of perspective. In order to carry someone’s burden we must understand it enough to have empathy for them. Our own experience, perception, and biased views can blind us from having this understanding and limit our ability to love someone that is not like us. Jesus told us to bring the nations together in his kingdom. This series will help us do that, have closer relationships, and much more. If you want to be a part of this next series please either reply to this email or contact Terry Morrow directly at tncmorrow@aol.com or 770-337-4455.
The start date is projected to be sometime in April. It will be a Zoom meeting so you can attend anywhere you have Internet.

Your fellow servants,

Terry & Cricket Morrow
Anthony & Patsy Alford
