On Sundays, we have been in a series called YOU ASKED FOR IT. We've been answering questions that have been submitted to us by YOU! We got WAY too many questions, though, so we decided to try and answer some of them on the podcast. Michael Corallo and Anna Jackson join the podcast to help answer questions about how we interpret Scripture, and about whether foot washing should be an ordinance of the church. This is Part 1. Tune back in next week for Part 2!
