Everyone is a Someone to God

The ultimate purpose of human life is to be fulfilled at the resurrection. That does not mean God neglects the present physical life. The fulfillment, abundance, happiness, and success of this human life are an integral part of God’s plan.

Count down to the 2016 retreat.
