“Stop! I don’t have to listen to this!”

“Stop! I don’t have to listen to this!”

When a Christian engages someone in a spiritual conversation, the “Good News” doesn’t always feel good … but it doesn’t have to be that way!

They are longing for something substantial to fill the emptiness inside, but what they experience from Christians may feel more like Mr. Bumble’s suspicious gaze. Instead of being met at their point of need, they...Read more …
