We are now ready to continue with the series “Carry One Another’s Burdens”. The classes will be every two weeks beginning on Saturday morning May 15 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. 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, to have closer relationships, and much more. If you want to be a part of this next series please reply to this email or contact Terry Morrow at 770-337-4455. It will be a Zoom meeting so you can attend from anywhere you have Internet. Most smart phones can access Zoom through your service provider as well even if you are traveling.
We look forward to seeing you then,
Terry & Cricket Morrow and Anthony and Patsy Alford
