Wednesday Evening Theology
“So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13
Faith, hope, and love—we hear a lot about each on their own, but how are they related? Why is this triad mentioned so often in the New Testament?
We hope you will join us on Wednesday evenings at 7pm in 2018 as we study and discuss how these three theological virtues—also referred to as “three divine sisters”—together serve as the foundation for our whole Christian life.
During our time together we will read through and discuss one or two short excerpts from Dr. Mark Jones' wonderful book, Faith, Hope & Love: The Christ-Centered Way to Grow in Grace. Written in the form of fifty-eight questions and answers, and modeled after the classic catechisms of church history, our time together will instruct our minds, stir our hearts, and motivate us to Holy Spirit-wrought and faith-filled obedience.
