One In The Spirit

"We Look Like Mississippi"

Via Transformativa: From Glory to Glory
From Death to Life

By: Rev. Candace Chellew-Hodge

Staying or going, going or staying - it's all part of how we walk through this life and the key is this - do we walk with our eyes set on the Holy, or on our own insecurities?
