Streams of Living Water

Join us in 2018 as we accept Jesus' invitation to drink His living water.


On Sundays, we will receive a message from God's Word . . . 

Then, use the following plan to help you review and apply that message to your life every day of the week!

the compassionate life


THE COMPASSIONATE LIFE is not a set of pious exercises for the devout, but a trumpet call to a freely gathered people who seek the total transformation of persons, institutions, and societies. 


We are to combine suffering love with courageous action. We are to stand against all oppressions and for all liberations. We are to become the voice of the voiceless, pleading their cause in the halls of power and privilege. 


The authors in this section on social justice show us the way.
