We’re going through a series called ‘Finders Keepers II’ learning from God’s word about how to find and keep the love that lasts a lifetime. We began with‘The Morning After’, where we learnt that relationships today are in big mess because as a result of our rebellion against God, women tend to manipulate while men tend to dominate.
