Do you remember the feelings you had on getting on a roller coaster? You felt the anticipation of the thrill of the speed as you flew around the ride, but there was an element of anxiety as you worried about what could go wrong.
That might describe how Dr. Luigi Esposito, Angelo, and I feel as I pass the baton to them tomorrow. The church has grown to an attendance of around 200 and it is feeling growing pains. We now need to pass the baton to Italian leadership for the Italian… Continue

Who is your God? That is the question we have been answering with our Christmas season preaching series.
