After surveying the core tenets of our faith from multiple sources, Church United has identified four essential truths that our region is desperate and starving to hear. We will be teaching through these truths together as a unified Church in South Florida during November 2019. On Wednesday join Mornings with Eric and Brigitte as Eddie Copeland, Director of Church United shares the core truths that will be shared by area pastors during this Unsinkable series.
Churches often act primarily as an organization when they should be primarily a family. Too often, the church does not feel like home. Church leaders are conditioned to believe that the measure of church success is growth, and they carry the burden of an unbiblical standard. Pastor Lee Eclov of Village Church of Lincolnshire joins Mornings with Eric and Brigitte on Wednesday to share how God's household is the very definition of the church.
Even though it has been quite controversial, the movie, The Joker has officially become the top-grossing R-rated movie of all time. Wednesday join Mornings with Eric and Brigitte as author of Rise of the Servant Kings and chairman of Promise Keepers, Ken Harrison, shares his belief that there are sociological and even biblical reasons behind the movie's success.
