Sunday December 16 Let Earth Receive

Pastor’s Blog Let Earth Receive Her King December 16, 2018 Christmas music is big business. A new song, a new artist, a new version seems to be broadcast every day. The casualty? The traditional Christmas Carols. I am not igniting a debate about contemporary music being less “anointed” or that...
