"There's a temptation inside of you, and there's a temptation inside of me - our souls are restless, and there's a part of us that wants to RUN...
Your ability to love will be determined by whether or not you find rest for your soul." - Pastor Mike Mannes
"You want to change the world? That won't happen unless you start HERE."
"Our new Mission statement as a church, the 'what' before our 'why': Love God, Love Each Other, Love this City." #ForThisCity #SouthsideChurch
"We all have regrets. For you it might be that you wish you could go back and re-do the first decade of your marriage, or go back and try harder at school or choose different friends.
Maybe you wish you had just been a nicer person, taken more time to be kind to people. Maybe you wish you could go back and stay pure or stay clean or stay married but you can’t and so you feel stuck here in the present, unable to let go of the shame of the past, unable to move forward."
- Corinne Mannes preaching from 2 scenes in the movie Hacksaw Ridge #AtTheMovies
