God's Response to Racism- Micah 6:8

May 31, 2020 Speaker: Heath Haynes Series: Stand Alone Sermons

Passage: Micah 6:8–6:8

The death of George Floyd has sadly, once again, propelled the reality of racism in our culture to the front of our hearts, minds, and conversations. In this message, we lean into God's promise as well as His heart for all humanity.
