#UntilJesusReturns

We live in a busy world. Things are always moving. Things are always changing. Things that glitter grab our attention. Things sparkle change our thoughts. But this is no time for the church to become distracted, nor is it a time to panic. This is the time to stand up, a time to stand out. This is a time to stand firm in the Gospel, until Jesus returns.
