Bible

This week, we will begin a new unit during which we will spend time closely examining some of the parables and miracles that Jesus did. In order to get a full picture of Jesus life and teachings, we will also spend time together reading through one of the gospels: Luke. This week, we will continue our reading of the book of Luke with chapters 5-7. We will also reflect on interesting things we learn in each chapter by doing a "book snap".
