  • Peace for Troubled Hearts

    PASTOR LEE SEESE|Feb 23, 2023

People commonly held up two fingers as a sign of peace. There was also a unique symbol for peace that was everywhere. Christians felt that it was a variation of the cross that should be avoided. A movie called “The Jesus Revolution” is being released this wee...
