At Calvary – Episode 65 – Jesus… Both Humble and Great

Can anything good come from Nazareth? Nathaniel the apostle asked this question of his friend Phillip right before he met Jesus.

At Calvary – Episode 64b – Promises… Promises – Worship and Concert

“Promises, promises…” We use that expression when we expect that someone won’t do something they said they would do. It is so important for us to keep our promises to one another.
