The Power of the Pen with Dr. Uzziah Harris | EP298

January 12, 2021

Dr. Uzziah Harris shares with us how God is still speaking through epistles written by new voices with an age-old message.

Will the real church please stand up? We exist in a world of extreme flux and volatility—one that is unpredictable and filled with pain. But why? Could it be that the church who was intended to be a model and beacon of light in the earth has instead become a follower and dispenser of the same ills that malign our landscape? The church, in her pursuit to have church, has somehow lost her way; the church as an institution has exploded (possibly morphing into something not recognized by its author) while the organism has suffered, causing her to forfeit the influence and power and connection she once possessed.
