  • Blind Spots

    Last Sunday we saw that perhaps the “good old days” weren’t as good as we thought. We saw that the church in the New Testament had many flaws. We saw that while our heroes of the faith had shining moments, they also had seasons marked with failure. Peter forgot the Gospel, Martin Luther...
