Are You Heavenly Minded Together Tuesday With The Youth

We are reminded in Colossians 3: 1 to set our hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God.  There wasn’t one soul on Sunday that wasn’t affected by the tragic deaths of Kobe, his daughter and the other individuals who boarded that helicopter and never planned on dying on that day.
