PRACTICAL CHRISTIAN LIVING – with Reverend Marlin Odom – Room 100
Unit 1: The Compassion of Jesus: Luke – This unit approaches the Gospel of Luke in a unique way, focusing on several great accounts illustrating the compassion of Jesus, where we’re reminded that our Savior is loving and kind, and works miraculously in the lives of His people.
Unit 2: The Holy Trinity – Every day we hear discussions and opinions about who God is, what He is like, and what He expects of us. It is critical that we explore the nature of God to prepare us to respond to arguments against our belief in the One True God.
