So we are supposed to sing a song to get us on the same page?
Phil Ware of www.interimministrypartners.com continues his series on inviting Jesus back to church with us and asks us to use Jesus to evaluate everything we do based on Jesus' example and teaching and use Paul's Christ hymn as our Jesus filter.
