Good afternoon everyone! This is the day that the Lord has made.
Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
This morning, Rev. Christopher Wolf continued his Lenten series, "Journey to the Heart of God". Covenant, justice, mercy, holiness are the keys to God's heart. In this series, we are learning more about their nature, as well as how they apply to our daily lives. Today's message covered one of these keys to God's heart - justice. This week's Christopher's Chat examines what God thinks of Justice.
