The Link: 9/11, Justice Without Christ, How to Rejoice in Ministry & More

September 11, 2001:
"We remember. We remember the shock and horror of watching such an act of wickedness play out in real-time. We remember the dread as we watched the Towers collapse. We remember the thousands of lives lost. We remember how wrong it felt, the feelings of violation, anger, and confusion. We remember the injustice. We remember the tears and grief in the days, weeks, and months that followed. We remember the heroic outpouring of courage and love from the first responders and the community. We remember the stories of hope and faith in the middle of the chaos. We remember the love of Jesus Christ, who came to heal a world broken by sin and evil. And we remember our mission to bring His love and healing into a world that needs it."
