The Power of the Spoken Word

Marie-Lauren Gregoire spoke on the topic "Proclaiming the Word of God: Spoken Word as Testimony" at Theology on Tap on January 18.

Marie-Lauren reminded us about the importance and power of the Spoken Word.  It is testimony that brings truth, freedom, redemption, and inspiration.  The Spoken Word testifies to the greatness and glory of God and bestows grace upon its speaker and listener.
