Something in us aches for more - more hope, more joy, more freedom. All around us people are dancing to the steps of bigger, better, faster, and we can easily join in without even realizing it.

God offers another way, as author Melissa Spoelstra shares in Numbers: Learning Contentment in a Culture of More, a six-week study from the Book of Numbers.
First United Methodist Garland offers Numbers as a Lenten Bible study on Wednesdays, March 20 through May 1 (except April 17).
