Church Without Sound

Church Without Sound

Imagine church without sound. I do not mean removing things that make noise – sound systems, music, people.

7 Highly Effective Biblical Habits of Eagles

One facet of the face of God is an eagle face which each of the four living creatures named as Cherubim had. They are placed around the throne of God to protect its holiness and proclaim the glory of God when it is revealed to them (Ezek 1:3-10; 10:15; Rev 4:6-10). Each time the living [...]
