Moral Values: What I Learned Growing Up in Church
Can the Christian church, divided over different beliefs about moral values, create Safe Places so people can live together in love through the practices of compassion, grace, and generosity? Moral Values: What I Learned Growing Up in Church is an invitation to the church to find common ground in Jesus' life and words. Love is the ultimate moral value; and compassion, grace, and generosity are the practices of love which empower us to live together in the love of God and one another to which Jesus called us. Listen to scripture and to the story of one man's journey of transformation rooted in what he learned as a child growing up in church -- that moral values follow the path of love.
