    Iron Sharpens Iron Meeting January

    Start Time: Thu 26, Jan. 2017, 9:30 p.m.

    What are creative ways to draw from literature, arts, sciences, and pop culture to bear fruit in the personal ministry of the Word? In what diverse ways can sound theology find expression in counseling? How might a biblical counselor use the world in which they live to bring scriptural truth to life in the minds of others?

    We'll look at these questions at our next Iron Sharpens Iron meeting on Thursday, January 26 from 6:30-8:30pm in Room A222 at Parkside Church Bainbridge.
