Racism, religious supremacism, fear of the “other” in all kinds of forms are sources of division that have always seemed to tear at the fabric of the Church, the body of Christ—and continue to do so today, sometimes with great viciousness.

Our message this week is brought by Rev. Charles Webb, from Mark 5:21-34. We hope that you will join us with this inspiring message, song, and prayer. Continue reading →
