ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL
Fellowship Sunday School Class. I Don't Want to Be a Goat!—Hopefully you all know how much I appreciated and enjoyed our discussion this past Sunday on our salvation experiences and understanding from our Presbyterian faith as well as the many faith traditions from which we come. Everyone was so willing to share and hopefully we all gained something from the time together. Knowing that we all are given unmerited salvation, the gift of grace and the assurance of heaven are truly promises from scripture. However, due to the length of the discussion, I didn't bring us back to our Matthew 25 passage where we are told, " He will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats." It was good to examine our understanding of being children of God and our understanding of how we see our salvation. I believe that our faith manifests itself in our lives. Thanks, again!
