Setting Goals That Stick

The Christian life was never meant to be a stagnant one. It is an ever-changing dynamic experience of becoming more like Christ.

The Story of Humility

We learned last week, from the story of Joseph, that God specializes in the use of the ordinary. That simple idea continues in the story of Mary.
