Stories such as this are common throughout the regular session at the West Virginia legislature. It encourages me that our studies from Paul’s letter to Philemon regarding forgiveness and reconciliation are certainly needed in the West Virginia Capitol.
This week’s study is titled “Forgiven Much? Forgive Much!” You can download our study here. We will be providing these studies three times each week during the session to allow those with extremely busy schedules to attend. We also distribute the notes to every legislator and elected official as well as many lobbyists and staff.
Christian writer and speaker Jim Hale will be this week's guest on CRC Insights. We will talk to Jim about his upcoming workshop to be held at the Christian Resource Center titled “Developing A Strong Christian Worldview.” During our interview, Jim said all Christians are commanded in Scripture to be ready to defend their faith when it is challenged. The workshop will give believers the tools to address nearly every opposition to the gospel that they meet.
