Africa

Heaven’s Church… what will it look like?

My friend Matt passed along an interesting Washington Post story about a church in Springfield, VA welcoming and embracing Christian traditions from around the world. The article seems fair, although I have never attended a service at the Word of Life Assembly of God church.  What i do appreciate is that Washington, DC is a place where worship…
