About The Event
"Who do you say that I am?" is a question that Jesus asked his disciples in the gospel of Matthew. Peter's response, in declaring that Jesus was the Messiah, was a key confession of faith that we continue to remember today. But what about God? Who do you that God is? Come explore some of the forgotten names of God from the Old Testament and see how a wider understanding of God can deepen our faith.
