In John 15, Jesus shares a great illustration using a vine, the branches, and the fruit on the branches to describe why it is so important to "remain" in Him.
Being the OFFENDED can be just as unhealthy and wrong as it is to be the OFFENDER.
But there's good news: You can choose if you are going to be offended. "SAY WHAT?"
Join us as we talk about one of the biggest plagues that is attacking our country today.
