S3:122 Psalm 36
Today at 9:30 AM

In today’s podcast, Emma Dotter interviews faithful Watermark Member, Jen Hernandez. In a unique way, Jen sees clearly how her own story parallels Psalm 36.

 Additional Scripture in this Passage:
 Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrated his love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Last Tuesday at 9:30 AM

Why are we called to confess to the Lord if he already knows our thoughts? In today’s episode, faithful Watermark member T.J.
