Sunday 6.2.19 (when prophets doubt)

This Sunday we’ll take a look at Luke 7:1-35, and see how John the Baptist, while in prison, expressed a momentary sense of doubt in Jesus when he heard news about Jesus’ ministry. We’ll also see how Jesus responded, not by criticizing John, but by calling him to greater faith. We hope to see you there!
