Right now we are reading a book by Rod Dreher "The Benedict Option, a strategy for Christians in a post-Christian nation."
A very timely book for everything that's going on in the society right now.
We meet via Google Meet; therefore, reply to this email to get the meeting link.
God wills that our prayers should not simply be requests, but thanksgivings too for what we have. For how should we ask for future things, if we are not thankful for the past?
