Wednesday & Thursday Word: The Book of Galatians

 
MPLS: Wed  Apr 5-May 3, 10:30-11:30am, optional small group discussion 11:30am-12noon, Rm 482-86
WEST: Thurs  Apr 6-May 4,10-11:30am, CFL Activity Room

Martin Luther called the Book of Galatians his "Katie von Bora." If you didn't know, that means his wife, and furthermore, it means he never wanted to be parted from her and loved nothing in life more than her. We don't know what Katie thought of all this, but we do know that for Luther this was a truly precious biblical book. With your Mount Olivet pastors (a different one teaches each week!), come and learn why Luther felt this way and what Galatians means to our own lives and faith. Cost: Donation.
