Christians Can't Be Too Busy to Love Their Neighbors


Jan 7 2014
Amid immigration reform efforts, taking God’s call to community more seriously and urgently.

Elena Foulis teaches at The Ohio State University, loves to read and write book reviews, and is a member of Vineyard Christian Fellowship in Columbus, Ohio.
