Daily: Sept. 01-Sept. 05 The Gospel of Hope (CD #8D35)

Daily: Sept. 08-Sept. 12 The Saga of Farmer Jesus - 1 (CD #8D36)
It's one of Jesus' most innovative teaching parables: the story of the Sower. However, many observers quickly decide that it's really a parable about the SOIL! How does a loving Jesus determine to find lost souls even among the hardened concrete of the secular pathway?

Daily: Sept. 15-Sept. 19 The Saga of Farmer Jesus - 2 (CD #8D37)
Have you ever had a flurry of initial response to the good news of the gospel? But as the next few weeks wore on (and you got to the book of Leviticus), the passion slowly cooled. Jesus gently tells a story about well-meaning people whose hearts are like stony soil. The good news is that heaven has a cure for our crusty souls.

Join Lonnie Melashenko for a weeklong study on reordering our spiritual priorities.
