TruthTalks: What Church would Jesus attend?

Following last weeks post, I talk briefly about the nine indicators of the presence of God in our church services. After that, Karen and I and have a lively (as always) question and answer session. Click on the play button below to listen and, as always, your comments and questions are most welcome 🙂

What Kind of Church would Jesus Attend?

My daughter suggested I write about the kind of church Jesus would attend. I have been thinking about it and I think it is something all Christians, and especially church leaders, need to consider.
