Loving Your Neighbor Today 2016


Jesus tells us to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But what does that mean for us today? How do we love our non-Christian neighbors or those who are hard to love, such as those who suffer from dementia or trauma? Speakers included Richard Mouw and our very own Calvin Seminary professors.
