Happy Father’s Day!

Pete (and Scott) Ruin Leviticus

Scott Dickson has our lesson again this Sunday. Scott has given the lesson this rather unusual title of “Pete (and Scott) Ruin Leviticus”. He is using the scripture of Leviticus 1:1-2a, from the Robert Alter translation.

“And He called to Moses and the Lord spoke to him from the Tent of Meeting, saying, “Speak to the Israelites”.

Scott always brings us an interesting lesson.
