Welcome home to our mission trip folks: Carl, Karen, Karen, Allison, Charlie and Linn! This Sunday we'll be talking about another image of the church: the church as a hospital for sinners. Carl will be preaching since I'll be visiting my grandmother in Atlanta. In preparation for Sunday, this week we'll be reading some reminders about Jesus' special love for the lost. We in the church can always learn from Jesus and his welcome for those whom others rejected.
