The .mp3 audio file for Pastor Allen Bauer’s July 13 message, “The Coats Of Reconciliation” is now available.
This sermon is part three of our series “The Five Coats of Joseph” and was offered during our Sunday worship service at Fishers Of Men Lutheran, one of the growing churches of Sugar Land.
Joseph had every right to seek revenge–three times over! But in today’s message we see how the power of God helps Joseph (and us) SEE God’s hand working in the bigger story of salvation and SEEK reconciliation.
