Seeking the Abundant Life
This series of messages is based on the guidelines for the good life in the poem of Henry van Dyke. It begins, "Four things we must all learn to do." Jesus said, " I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly." (John 10:10) After the introductory message there are two messages on each of four guidelines: 1) good thinking; 2) good will (love); 3) good deeds from good motives (integrity); and 4) good news of trust in God.
