What does a tall tale sound like? God dying for us while we are still sinners sounds like the stuff of legends! The difference is that it’s all true! We’ll visit a little American folklore this Sunday and hear about God’s fantastic love.
This Sunday we continue the 40-day journey to the cross that started on Ash Wednesday. Do you trust me? (To the moon and back, right?)
