Durham CARES [Opportunity Compilation]
From one of our long-time partners, DurhamCares...
The gospel of Mark 6:6-7 teaches us
“Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village. Calling the Twelve to him, he began to send them out two by two…”
These words remind us of the importance of partnerships in the ministry of the gospel. They have some wonderful ideas about how we can love well as people of faith during this unusual time we find ourselves in.
