“THE GOSPEL AND” RESOURCE LIST
At City Life Houston we do not shy away from hard conversations surrounding topics that may be controversial in culture. Instead we prefer to tackle these talks head on. In our series, "The Gospel And..." We got the opportunity to talk through the topics of mental health, race, sexuality and war.
During our series, we heard from our pastors, elders, leaders, and some of our members who specialize in these topics professionally.
The Gospel And... gave us an eye-opening perspective on these topics and our speakers shared some awesome resources with us for continued education.
