Genesis - A New Beginning: A New King

It could be that the very things that you find most traumatic and difficult are the things that God is precisely weaving into the tapestry of your life.

Genesis - A New Beginning: A New Temptation, Part 2

Genesis - A New Beginning: A New Encounter

It's easy for us to think that only special religious places can be zones of access to God. But as Jesus taught us, his worshippers are to worship him in spirit and in truth. So even a desert road with a few rocks can be the house of God. God can even meet us in a dream on the road to nowhere.
