JUST WHAT IS A CHRISTIAN? And, how does being one really differ from the other religions and moral codes of the world? This is the question that Mr. Brownly is struggling with – and which was keeping him from openly sharing his faith with others. My guess is that many within our churches will be able to identify with him. The “THIS IS THE LIFE” episode entitled “House of Sand” does an excellent job of answering this question! I encourage everyone who may have missed this episode to go to “mainstreetliving.com” and click on “Watch This Is The Life,” then scroll down to the “House of Sand” episode – posted June 26, 2020 – to watch this program! (You may wish to keep scrolling and watch other episodes too sometimes.)
Please continue to share information about our LCMS “Main Street Living” media ministry with others. In addition to being broadcast each Sunday morning, you can view archived programs anytime at www.mainstreetliving.com/North
