Thinking - a sweet summer project?

Posted by Ruthanne on June 30, 2015

Is Sunday’s sermon still in your mind?  Does RML feed your meditations? Is your Bible time ponder-full?! 

Are you someone who ‘thinks’ about the Bible? 

Perhaps you’re not a big thinker; read on. This blog is not about comprehension and context; RML teaches us that. Nor is it about becoming the next great Christian thinker.
