About God's Word for Today: Colossians/Philemon. (13 sessions) God speaks to us today through Colossians and Philemon concerning the person and work of Jesus, how Jesus' work on our behalf gives us purpose and worth, what the name "Christian" means, and how God's love enables us to respond in love to others, even those who have harmed or hurt us.
