The man therefore read it, and looking upon Evangelist very carefully, said, “Whither must I fly?” Then said Evangelist, pointing with his finger over a very wide field, “Do you see yonder wicket-gate?” The man said, “No.” Then said the other, “Do you see yonder shining light?” He said, “I think I do.” Then said Evangelist, “Keep that light in your eye, and go up directly thereto, so shalt thou see the gate; at which, when thou knockest, it shall be told thee what thou shalt do.”

On Saturday, April 8th, we will be holding our first Taste & See event in Moscow! From 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m we’ll talk about what a new church will look like. The seminar topic will be “Universal Truths for the Universal Church.” From 5:00–6:30 p.m. you’ll have a chance to experience a typical Anglican worship service. We hope to see you in April. For more information, please email us at: ctkmoscow at sign yahoo.com (facebook)
The event will be held at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Moscow (1000 W Pullman Road):
