The Long Steady Walk
The Christian life is not a sprint to perfection but a long, steady walk with God. During the journey, we learn new habits and ways to engage with others. We come to enjoy patience, kindness, grace, love, justice and compassion. This series will help us discover how to walk with Jesus as our guide.
