Re: locked behind bricks

That's a nice thought but it would probably be better for them to see us loving our neighbor and each other. Then they might want to join us. But to an outsider looking in is a Church not something sort of shrouded in mystery to the outsider, that might be off putting? I think there is something th...

Re: Soul Liberty

The most memorable of Steve Gregg's mp3s in my opinion is called: Strategies For Unity. If you haven't listened to it, please do, I bet you'll enjoy it. You can find it here , in the middle column, the fifth from the top Thanks Jeremiah, just listened and really enjoyed this teaching very much :D

Appreciate thoughts, TIA
