Yeah the Gospel but what does that look like

Derek Schiller from ST George

Derek is passionate about the Gospel of Jesus our Lord and Saviour.  We know that the Gospel is the power of God for salvation but does this Gospel have anything to do with our everyday lives, our marriages, families, relationships, work, friendships, and difficult times.  Could there be power for all of these too?
