Seven: Exploring the Seven Deadly Sins continues in the worship center for adults. The study will begin tonight promptly at 7:00pm and will feature 15-20 minutes of lecture followed by conversation about SLOTH.

If you think talking about sloth is talking about laziness and the cure for sloth is a good lecture about the Protestant Work Ethic, you will be very surprised by the direction this class will take tonight.

These words from William Willimon will hint at one implication of sloth:
“Sloth is that sin that enables us to walk by the poor person with the outstretched hand, and no longer feel a twinge of conscience, no longer even see the empty hand reaching out to us in need, unable to consider the possibility that the man asking us for a handout is an invitation to grow closer to God.”
