Jeremiah in the Epic Story of God

When God chose to reveal Himself and His workings in this world to us He did not choose to give a lecture, He chose to tell us a story!  This story is truly epic.  It is a story that covers everything that God has done to create, redeem & restore His people throughout thousands of […]

He is stronger
