Give Peace A Chance (w/Andy Holtgreive)- SOULSEEDS radio

Audio Sermon

There’s a cycle of violence in the world, and to a great extent we’ve all bought into it. None of us are innocent. Every one of us has a mind and a worldview and a responsibility to craft a worldview, a story; one that is full of peace, one that changes the cycle.
