The 7 Deadly Sins – Pride

Production Note There is no video available for this message.  I feel really bad about this.  Sorry. What’s Up with The Seven Deadly Sins?

It’s about that pesky thing you do; that something that you know before hand you shouldn’t indulge in, and that afterwards…

Recovery, 2 of 5 – How Change Happens Part 2

Five Instructions about Recovery We all have something that bothers our way along the Jesus Path.   What’s got you held up in your walk?  What makes you stumble?  Perhaps it’s a destructive habit – but it doesn’t have to be.  What is it you find yourself doing that you’d not want to do…
