The sovereignty of God can bring with it a lot of questions and/or baggage depending upon your religious context. Is God in control? What is God’s will for our lives? Is history already determined? This week Allen and Jeff discuss how their answers to these questions have changed for them over the years and what that has meant for their lives and spirituality.
