Side by Side – Day 29 “Abba”

Gregory Wasinski Featured, Seasonal Series, Uncategorized

I believe that there are certain words we use that call us into a deeper level of spirituality. One of those words is the name Jesus utters for His father in heaven, “Abba.” Author Brennan Manning wrote, “My identity as Abba’s child is not an abstraction or a tap dance into religiosity.
