Today, we look at Mark 11 and John 12 in our Bible Reading Plan.  The video below recaps John 1-12 and helps you review what we have been learning as we have studied the life of Jesus.  John shows us who Jesus is through several “I am” statements.  Jesus is still “presently” working and He desires that we know Him and make Him known.

Civility – formal politeness and courtesy in behavior or speech The Growing Frustration As conservative citizens see the rapid pace at which the country is changing, fear turns into rage. As liberal citizens seek to defend their beliefs to a level of mass acceptance, any such resistance is met with…
