Last Sunday in the Link we continued with Part 2 of our series “Set Free” with a message entitled “Free to Give What You Have Received.” Here are a couple of questions we will start with this Sunday in the Link during our breakout session:
1. When was the last time you carved out time to be absolutely alone with God? What arrangements needed to be made?
2. How do you understand tradition in light of this passage?
Colossians 2:8 Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ.
This coming Sunday, we will NOT be holding the Link. Instead we will be participating in a special Pentecost Prayer following coffee break. We will resume with Part 3 of our series “Set Free” the following Sunday, June 26th.
