Deep and Wide

So as we talk about our motivations for missions, let’s just go ahead and stop pretending and let’s go ahead and confess that we are a people in our day and time that are not very good at defining and even naming or even knowing our motivations for anything. Can we just rest by acknowledging that? Everybody say, “Amen!” If anybody asks you – this is how you’re...
