 Pathways to Discipleship

November

November's theme is Forbearance. This old-fashioned word means "patient self-control; restraint and tolerance."  For Christians it means more than just tolerating others; it's a mutual exercise in respecting others.  During the Post-election and Pre-Thanksgiving weeks, the Pathways resources will provide lessons and tools to help us get along with one another.
