Guardrails – Beginning February 14th

[Guardrails: a system designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas.] They’re everywhere, but they don’t really get much attention . . . until somebody hits one.

The Most Powerful Words You Can Speak

Two years ago, Hoboken Grace sent a team to Gulu, Uganda, for a Restore International Vision Trip. Their tour of northern Uganda took them to Restore Leadership Academy, where they held a graduation ceremony with Bob Goff, the group’s founder. They danced, watched balloons sail high into the air, and shared words of love and encouragement.
