In Worship: We continue our Worship series entitled: “Dwell”. In the weeks ahead, we will explore several narratives from the Old Testament with an eye to discerning what provides a solid foundation and structure for “God’s house” – which stands not only for God’s Sanctuary but for the people called by God’s name. This week: Dwell: Pillar of Wisdom. And, each week in Worship we’ll see a new short video highlighting the Stories of Faith at Wesley Church.
