This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Introduction

Recently I concluded a series of classes entitled “Old Sunday School Lessons”.  I rolled out those old time favorites like David and Goliath, Joseph & the Coat of Many Colors, Moses and the Red Sea and quite a few others.  My overall theme was faith with each lesson focusing on faith in God or having faith in His promises.

In this lesson I want to confront the realities of our mortality, understand it and know that God can use anyone of any age to fulfill His purposes. Read the rest of this entry »
