2. Followup on last week's meeting: resource from Pastor Derek
Last week, Pastor Derek led us in through 1 Peter 2:4-10 and reminded us that we, like Jesus, are living stones being built into a spiritual house for a royal priesthood -- chosen, fully known, and precious in His sight. Pastor Derek also wanted to share this "Bad news, Good news" resource with PHCF'ers: http://www.up-in-out.com/uploads/2/4/2/9/24293890/learning_circle_summary_04162014.pdf
