10 Most Important Locations for our Faith Story
Dr. Bob Long and Rev. Wendy Lambert | Sanctuary
Edmond Campus Live Video, or Online Campus
How have places like Egypt, the Mediterranean Sea, and the city of Jerusalem affected our faith? What does the Bible say about them? Places like Antioch, the Sea of Galilee, and Caesarea Philippi all have histories that inform our faith today. We are strengthened in our connection to God and understanding of the Bible when we know more about our spiritual ancestry. Join Dr. Bob Long and Rev. Wendy Lambert for a tour of the most important locations of our faith tradition.
Dr. Long is the Senior Pastor of St. Luke’s, and Rev. Lambert is the Senior Executive Pastor. Together they have co-taught WNA classes for over 12 years. Their unique back-and-forth teaching style keeps everyone engaged.
