LTGL: Danny Avula

Third Church Sermons

LTGL is a quarantine miniseries, short for Little Things with Great Love, where we’re looking at ways people in our community are seeking to be faithful to Jesus and his mission during this pandemic. We hear a lot about politicians and big name national leaders in the news, but the greatest heroes in this pandemic will most likely be people you’ve never heard of, neighbors and local leaders acting in small, courageous forms of sacrificial love and service. There are so many ways that God’s people are seeking to be faithful to Jesus in this pandemic, and we want to highlight a few of those stories. Little things with great love. Thanks to Isaac Wardell for use of the song “Little Things With Great Love,” featuring Madison Cunningham, from the Porter’s Gate Album “Work Songs.”
