    This was so encouraging! You would love some of Jeff Vanderstelt’s teaching. Look up his video called, “Rhythms”. It is such a beautiful and encouraging message about community and how we can spread Jesus and His glory through community!

    I am really impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one these days.
