2017 WARMBRUNN ADDRESS: NOT THE FAKE NEWS, BUT THE FULL STORY
In addition to the above, Dr Andrew Menzies delivered the 2017 Warmbrunn Address prior to the commencement of the CCVT Inc Annual General Meeting on May 6 2017. He explored how ways of thinking and doing can solidify into habits that limit the stories of Jesus into repeatable, stunted versions of themselves.
