Who Should Eat Off the Floor? - SERMON

The ones we're so ready to make eat off the floor - are we sure that's where God wants them to be? Or, is it just more comfortable for us if they know their place, keep quiet, and leave us to be alone with others who think like we do? Find the sermon here.See More
