When I was Young

Three times this week, it was said to me something like, “You’re getting old.” Was I alarmed? Yes.

Where to Start

Last Sunday, I was talking through the question “Is Jesus Really God?” and to be honest, I’m really challenged and yet appreciative of the Explore God series for giving us these very stripped down raw questions to deal with.
