If you're like most teens, you have lots of questions about the Bible: why it says certain things and what they mean, as well as how it affects you. Now there's a time set aside in the CO Chapel just to talk about these important topics. Each Thursday, at 9 PM ET, COHost EB will be answering Bible questions and providing guidance to help you find the answers on your own.
