NOTEWe apologize for the poor audio quality of this recorded sermon.  The software with which we record our messages took the audio from the laptop mic rather than the feed from our sound board hence the distant echo of a preacher in this MP3.  The diligent may be able to hear but we understand those who might find the file unusable.
