Join us for a special series of summer Adult Education Forums led by the clergy. We will learn about some of the more unlikely heroes of scripture—those who entered God’s story from the margins of society, or who may have thought they had no spiritual gifts to share…only to become surprising messengers of grace. These are people who came to play a part in God’s story that they never could have imagined. The Rev. Zack Thompson continues our series with Mordecai and Esther.
