this week and beyond...

This week lots of things to pass along... including rethinking tuesdays and Donald Miller...

“rethinking tuesday” march 21 at 7 p.m.
topic: “Rethinking eternal punishment (or) what the Hell is going on?”

In most evangelical statements of faith, one of the last statements includes a statement that says something like: “We believe in the everlasting blessedness of the righteous and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.” Does the Bible clearly teach this doctrine – or are there other Biblical options?

Most importantly, how does this doctrine affect how we do church? If ‘eternal conscious punishment’ were to be seriously questioned, what might be lost? What might be gained?

Please RSVP We want to be sure we have enough seating at the Black Rose.
