Small groups

I don’t know if you are a part of a small group/home group/some other sort of group that meets together regularly in a more personal, intimate setting than a big Church/youth group meeting for Bible study and fellowship.

Cast all your burdens

I’ve just finished exams. I’m a first year medical student, so while they aren’t the most difficult exams anyone has ever had to do; they aren’t exactly a walk in the park either. They’ve been causing me a bit of concern and stress, and as well as that have been eating up huge chunks of…
