Do you believe that “we” is better than just “me”? Megan Hill reminds us that God’s Church is His gift to us to conform us more into the image of His dear Son, Jesus Christ. This episode explores ecclesiology, or what it means to think biblically about the Church. She shares from her new book A Place to Belong: Learning to Love the Local Church.
