The TASK

As a family, get together to discuss a few of these questions, based on Ken’s passage on Sunday.

As a class, while we may not be able to get together, we CAN get on the phone and have a spiritual conversation. Will you commit to this process, to get more out of what Ken preaches on Sunday?
