Join me at River City Church over the next 3 Sundays for a series that attempts to look at a subject that Christians have gotten wrong, often at the cost of their own pain and quality of life. Check out the subjects we’ll be exploring these next three Sundays and plan to join us.

I’m looking forward to this series and felt the clear direction of the Holy Spirit to address these issues. If you can be with us, open and prepare your heart to hear how our faith speaks powerfully to those whose struggle is real and to others who love someone in the midst of this kind of trouble.
