As Christians, one of our greatest witnessing tools is our joy! Even as we stand strong in an adversarial culture, the church should be known for our ability to celebrate! We can be change agents through our attitudes and actions as we life up each other and extol our God! Chris Brooks brings a message from Nehemiah about the world-changing power of joy-filled celebration!
