Father Len explores the history of worship and reveals that all worship and its purpose come from the Bible. Highlights, Ideas, and Wisdom The word liturgy means worship or how to worship.

The story reveals the essence of the religion of Jesus and puts our beliefs about religion on trial.

Ep1 How to Love like Christ

4/26/2022
Father Len unpacks three Bible stories about love and illustrates the traits God will help us develop, and we’ll surely need, if we are to love like Christ.

All they wanted to hear was God loves me and people like me. God tells the prophet Jeremiah, people “will fight against you” when you preach unconditional love, but I...
