The Embodiment of Heaven

Stained Glass Shine 12 - 4x3

Hospital Hospitality and its Lesson for the Church

BLOG@ (1)

I'm about to get personal in this blog post. Pastor Cory challenged me to write about what the Lord is teaching me right now in this very moment. To do so, I must be willing to be vulnerable enough to share some of my struggles and desires concerning where I am at in this season of life.

What do they all have in common? How do they play out in the church practically? Since my Junior year of highschool, I have been on a spiritual and theological journey to answer th...
