Many great stories this week
Mark Harris ran a good race for the U.S. Senate, but he did not get enough votes to win the Republican primary on Tuesday, May 6. There is one thing I am certain he accomplished. He has preached a message from the prophet Jeremiah about 50 times across the state since early December. I heard the sermon twice and was challenged each time. It is a very powerful word that every Christian needs to hear. Knowing the way God works in multiple ways and on many levels in life, I believe Harris has made a great contribution to the spiritual strength of every church where he preached and every person who heard this message.
This week’s issue of the Biblical Recorder and our website BRnow.org are really packed with stories of challenge, motivation and encouragement.
