Have you begun planning your New Years’ goals? If not, it’s time to begin to pray about what God has for you in 2017. But wait, I have an idea. Won’t you join me and others for 31 days? We are putting together another online Facebook group studying Experiencing God Through His Names. The second study group began on October 1 and is currently on Day 24. We will finish on October 31, so we are making plans to begin our third group on January 1. Please join us.
