In the world of mission scholarship and practice, Andrew and Ingrid Walls are the most interesting people you could meet. They live in Aberdeen, Scotland, but will be worshipping with us on Palm Sunday, April 14. Following worship there will be a light sandwich lunch in Room 214 where we will have a conversation about how the mission of God is being lived around the world today. No reservation required. Just come!
