GLS2013 Session 4 – Bob Goff – Love takes action

Summary Through, stories, humour and high challenge, Bob Goff has one simple message for us in this session: love takes action.  Real love will result in something happening, it is not just a feeling or even kind words.  In particular the story of his involvement in two inter-connected lives in Uganda is deeply moving and […]
