Connecting Faith 4-20-18 | Sen. Cory Booker’s religious test for Mike Pompeo | John Campbell on Africa
In the news, Senator Cory Booker’s line of questioning during Mike Pompeo’s confirmation hearing was an attempt to substantiate his vote with a religious test. #PraytheNews for the people of Myanmar who are hiding in the jungle from their own governement. In all our human interactions as ambassadors of Christ, are we putting on love in the manner of Colossians 3?
