Eric Metaxas discusses The Voice of the Church Yesterday and Today at Parent Compass Celebration of God Gala. A few of the take aways: We have all greatly benefited and live today in the way we do because good people used their voice. Many of the voices of yesterday did so at the risk of their own lives.
