Last Sunday at Lightway we launched our Debt Relief Ministry in partnership with Christians Against Poverty.  To help us see the big picture of compassion ministry we looked at Jesus' meeting with a funeral parade in Luke 7:11-17.  There, the crowds learned that through Jesus God was coming to the aid of the...
