Do you see others in life as the Villain in the story, the villain in your story? Do we see ourselves as victims? In this blog, John Harding dives deep on the topic and the character of Judas, the villain in the story of Jesus and asks what lessons we can learn for our own lives.
Have you been thinking about your New Year’s Resolutions for 2021? Got your new diary and goal-setting mindset? Most of us do. It’s a New Year.
