Making Sense of a Transitional Season

Hi Friends, The other day I wrote about a coming movement. Today, I would like to look at a few indicators of this movement, its counterfeits, and some practical ways we can respond to what God is calling the Church into. This post is by no means intended to be exhaustive, but does seek to ...
