Jesus claims to being the bread of life, the bread that came down from heaven costs him many followers. Yet there are those for whom his words continue to resonate as a source of inspiration, of hope, of life.

22 August 2021 - Discerning the Words of Life - John 6 vs 56-69

Every blessing to you and your family as we move through Pentecost.
