The Serpent and the Dove
The first time Jesus sent out his disciples to proclaim the gospel he described both the mission and the mission field. Empowered by God, they were sent forth to be as sheep among the wolves and therefore instructed to act with the wisdom of the serpent and the gentleness of the dove. In his book, Strength to Love, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. says this means we must have strong minds and soft hearts. Join us as we begin this series studying scripture through the lens of Dr. King and discovering together how to be wise as well as gentle, discovering the strength to love.
