Australia’s premiere evangelical event?

KCC's Oxygen is becoming, it seems to me, Australia's premiere evangelical event. This week 1,500+ Christian leaders have gathered in Sydney to rally around the gospel of Jesus Christ.

All good things must end . . . but what a powerful end! Bryan Chapell spoke on Christ's love for the vulnerable and it was so good that I will post a separate blog on the highlights. Again, I left in tears over how incredible God is! But I wanted

#onelove2014 – “Do You Love Me?”

Nancy Guthrie just spoke at One Love women's convention here today, helping us understand HOW to repond to God's amazing love. From John 21 where Jesus asked Peter 3 times "Do You Love Me?", we see Jesus graciously offering forgiveness for the 3 times Peter denied Him. Words can't be
