Should Christians seek to be influential in the public square? How did Christians throughout history see their role in living out their faith in the societies and times in which they lived? Christian Commentator Michael Austin delves into a Christian History magazine edition titled "City of Man – Christian Civic Engagement Through the Ages" describing for us how the early church's reputation can provide a template for us as we seek to live the gospel in our 2022 world!
When you are feeling overwhelmed, what steps can you take to seek God's peace? Ann Swindell looks to many Biblical men and women as a template as to how we can put on and live out peace in difficult circumstances and challenging times. Ann shares with us some of her own struggles and how she found encouragement from the biblical Hannah. If your fleeting feelings are keeping you from the peace of Christ, this conversation will offer a route to walk in for lasting peace.
