Some of us are spending a lot of time with our families these days. While that can be good . . . conflict can also be an issue. What are some common family dilemmas that any family may be facing, especially when they find themselves together all the time! Author, Ron Deal shares some challenges that blended families, and not-so-blended families face as they learn how to best pursue a loving home environment.
Gathered worship is a chance to see the Body of Christ on the earth, to see God's activity in ourselves and others, and to point all of our hearts in unity to Him with ONE VOICE. So, how do we worship when we're in our homes, when the stages, inspiring music, and "atmosphere of worship" are removed? Wednesday on Mornings with Eric and Brigitte, Julie Anne Vargas, Creative Director of Village Hymns shares what it's like to enter into true worship in times like these.

Village Hymns began in 2016 with a vision to build a community of worship leaders who actively write songs for their churches to sing. They believe that each local church has a unique journey and, as pastors write sermons to specifically speak to their local congregations, worship leaders can come alongside them and put to song all the ways that God is walking their church through different seasons. When all unite around the Gospel and sing the prayers that God has placed in our hearts, they believe that one day we will see His kingdom come in South Florida.
