Sunday, October 2, 10:30 AM “FAITHFUL DOUBT” Rev. Ted Tollefson “In the churches of our childhood, doubt was sometimes portrayed as the enemy of faith, but don’t believe it! What if Faith and Doubt go together like ice cream and chocolate sauce? or ginger and garlic? I will be suggesting several ways that faith and doubt can be mutually complementary and telling you some stories about Doubting Thomas, Mary Magdalene and Thomas Jefferson. And I’ve invited Thomas R. Smith to read a couple poems and sing a song to enhance our morning offering. Join us and bring your questions.
