Review – A Matter of Days – Chapter 12

But Jimmy’s advice here is great, and not just because our church made the same suggestions to our little flock.
And may I suggest reading 1 Thessalonians 5, a chapter full of reminders to encourage each other.


The Domain for Truth

For months now we’ve been doing “This Sunday at Church” every Sunday.  I realize that some churches today are not open though they will be live-streaming because of the Corona Virus situation.  So today’s I want to encourage you to do something different: This Sunday BE the Church in light of the Corona Virus.
