Choose: Death & Adversity or Love & Prosperity

July 10, 2016, The Rev. Doyt L. Conn, Jr. preaching

And I wondered if we, as a people, can so effectively focus on curing disease and saving lives within a body, why can’t we do the same to cure the Dis-ease that lives between bodies, between people, and neighbors, and communities, and around this nation? We know how to choose life for a body, can we do the same thing when it comes to the body that is our neighbor? Read more
