Pastor Clementson leads us in discussion at Grace Lutheran

Pastor Clementson leads us in discussion for the Grace Lutheran Church adult education hour. This fall we will be discussing "Half Truths," of the Bible by Adam Hamilton.

And, btw, Hezekiah was, "according to the Hebrew Bible, the son of Ahaz and the 13th king of Judah. Archaeologist Edwin Thiele has concluded that his reign was between c. 715 and 686 BC.," according to Wikipedia. He died: 687 BC, Jerusalem, Israel. Just saying.
