The 2013 Q Sunday Questions from Texting

The following questions were submitted through text during our 9 and 11 Sunday morning services during our Q Sunday format at First Assembly in Lafayette.

I addressed some of these, and you can see my responses by checking out the 9 o'clock archived video, as well as the 11 o'clock link.

I think these questions offer fascinating insights into our congregation and where MANY American Christians are at.  Check them out and feel free to interact with them on the comment feature below.

I'll be dealing with these questions in my blog, over the coming year, or in Sunday morning messages. Enjoy!
