Series: More Life > Less Religion

MORE LIFE > LESS RELIGION

In this 4-week series through the month of January, Integration Pastor John Colpitts led us in exploring 4 core realities of what it means to be human in our culture. We will draw on the wisdom of the Psalms as we delve into the themes of freedom, fear, dignity, and desire. As we engage together across generations, our goal is to grow in our understanding of who we are and aspire to be in light of who God is.
