In last weeks episode, Michael and SJ talked about spiritual orientation to the bigger story and war that is going on. It is not good for man to go through this story alone. In this Episode of Exploring More Michael Thompson, and SJ Jennings dig into a quote that Zoweh has come to love from Dan Allender. It says “Find like-hearted kings living in the same direction. Sign treaties. When one kingdom is at war, both are at war.” The Kingdom is meant to be a brotherhood full of Allies.

Recovery of those experiences and healing is a big piece of the fullness of life that Jesus offers us.
