Arise to Christmas: Arise to Unexpected Challenges (Herod)

Arise to Christmas: Arise to Unexpected Challenges (Herod) - Ken Wetmore

God has a way of disrupting our plans and expectations. Those disruptions are an opportunity to choose between two paths: Peace or Violence. This Christmas, arise to peace even when unexpected challenges come your way.


One of our #WholeLifeReflections this week asked: What would it look like if Jesus had control over your fears?
