By Dave Henning / June 7, 2022

By Dave Henning / June 5, 2022

“While some inflicted pain is inadvertent, tragically, sometimes the pain against us is willful and repetitive.  We might never know the exact reason why Christians hurt each other, but here’s what I do know: this kind of pain is deep and some never recover from it.  I’m also convinced that God’s purpose is to use […]
