Biblical Month 5 – AV Live – Video

AV – The Paradoxical Month

The themes of the month of Av ultimately represent the balance of elements we deal with constantly on our journey through life. The truth and blessing to uncover is that the loving hand of our Father in Heaven is there to help and support us through it all.

Throughout all the ravages of man against G-d’s people, His mighty and merciful hand has lifted and sustained us, and helped us to transform the tragedy into positive action; the misery into repentance and forgiveness; the desolation into redemption.
