Speaking the Truth in Love

Tuesday August 25, 2015
In his sermon this week, Pastor Richard Goeres says that while the fact that we are all sinners is not the good news, it is the truth, and the thing about the gospel is that it always meets us in our truth. It is us, as we actually are and not who we pretend or present ourselves to be, that Jesus comes to save. And Jesus is insistent that we know that.
