You’ll hear some radio favorites then join us during the second half of the evening as we all worship together, as beautiful offerings.”</p> <p>The heart behind the name Beautiful Offerings, Weaver continues, is “After we receive that we’re redeemed by what Jesus has done, we need to look at ourselves the way He looks at us. Then, begin to live in the greater reality that Jesus bought for us on the cross. We are beautiful offerings, with an awesome opportunity to respond with our lives to bless the heart of God.”</p> http://www.wordlabelgroup.com/news/2014/09/04/bigdaddyweaveannouncesbeautifulofferingstourchrisaugustgroup1crewanddaramaclean#comments Official Thu, 04 Sep 2014 21:47:10 +0000 teamword 29261 at http://www.wordlabelgroup.com
