This morning, we begin our new series on the Book of Jonah. But why are we going here? And why now in the life of our church? Is there more to this story than just a big “fish tale”? And what is there here that God would speak to our hearts individually and as a […]
It is the issue of our time. It tears us apart socially and politically — and it is a dark shadow over us spiritually. What is the way to light? How are we as a church and as believers to speak to an area of such hurt and such struggle, socially and personally? How can […]
John, after asserting that the heavens and earth couldn’t contain all that there is to say about Jesus, wraps up his gospel with deep, personal pictures of restoration.
