Parables of Jesus: "Strength"

Randy Christian

Broken things are rarely strong. Strength comes from not being broken, but brokenness can come individually and in community. In the U.S. right now, there is a lot of division — sometimes so strong that people who say they love one another are inviting the other to leave and never come back. But real strength comes in unity before the Lord, and there are specific steps we can take to limit the disunity and build on the unity God has given us.

Join us as we look at the Good Name of God and begin to understand the awe we experience with Him.
