“It’s Wear It Rainbow at work this week. Not sure what to do.”

how to have conversations that restore

There’s no shortage of public opinion on the recent conviction of Cardinal George Pell for historic child sexual abuse.

Forget about the Jesus we think we know. Forget about the Jesus we’ve heard about. Forget about the Jesus we’ve grown up with. And rediscover the Jesus in the Bible.
