Sunday, September 10
Rev. Dr. Michelle Morris

This sermon will introduce the series and talk about how we cannot let one particular version of Christianity capture the dialogue and effectively become a state religion. State religions deny people free will to choose God and God’s will, and thus are in violation of God’s design.
