When society rejects, Christians should welcome. When culture ostracizes, believers should embrace. When the world “cancels,” followers of Jesus should look past mistakes.
Theology of the Week: What Music Should We Use in Worship?
In this video, I seek to answer the age-old question: what music should we use in our worship services? Should we use contemporary or hymns? I think you’ll find the answer is more simple than we think.
Stop Putting Caveats on the Sovereignty of God
