Two awesome volunteers for tonight's community potluck here Centre Street! Come on down!

Matt 5:38-48 Jesus teaches on reversals of fortune. The text pulls us in closer to consider loving the very ones that bring us pain. The ones who do us wrong. It's a perplexing teaching as we are asked to be perfect like God. But what about when we're the ones who are doing the wrong? If we come about it that way, we get a glimpse of what perfect means.
