Preached by Andrew Ruth
The center column holds the main text for each day, while the right column includes secondary texts.
Basic Tips:1.) Use a translation you can understand. If new to the Bible, try the NIrV or The Message, which are both available online. 2.) Use a kids Bible with kids. 3.) Keep a pencil and notebook around to write down questions, observations, and conclusions. 4.) Have fun. Use your imagination and your brain.
Questions to Guide You:
We’re stepping away from Matthew for 6 weeks to remind ourselves of Oakland’s Vision and Values, which we abbreviate our P.S.A.L.M. because it is our worship of God in action. P. stands for “We Prize Presence.” S. stands for “We Serve Hard.” A. is for “We’re Always Growing.” Spiritual growth is not an option, and faith is more of a journey than a light switch. Faith is like a plant it is either growing or shriveling, but never staying the same.
