Sorry, I clocked send by accident.  Here's the real edition


DEVOTION: Hebrews 9:24-28 English Standard Version (ESV)

24 For Christ has entered, not into holy places made with hands, which are copies of the true things, but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God on our behalf. 25 Nor was it to offer himself repeatedly, as the high priest enters the holy places every year with blood not his own, 26 for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. 27 And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment, 28 so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.

A new small group or individual Bible study is out called "Family: It's Complicated", that would pertain to many situations and families in our church!  It talks about something called ACEs "Adverse Childhood Experiences"  which cause people to have trouble as adults.  It seems like it would be great for a small group Bible study during the week, or for any individual to do at home.  Some have already expressed interest.  Is there any more interest in a small group study or even individual study?
