A Heart That Is Ready and Hands That Are Busy

Posted on: March 25th, 2015 by Jerry Shaffer

When we think about the end… the how, when, where Christ will return… what should we think?  There are so many unknowns and variations of opinions, how could we ever be sure?  Perhaps the better question should be, “What should we do, or be, while we wait?”  Classically this question has been positioned like this, […]
