This is Darren's first Sunday back after his trip to the UK to take part in the 252nd session of the International College for Officers (ICO). He has chosen to share some of his experiences and also the lessons he has taken on board from sharing with officers from 27 countries around the world. He was humbled and inspired by his colleagues and hopes that their wisdom and devotion can change the direction of Riverside.

Isn't it wonderful when someone understands you; when someone just gets how you are feeling and knows how to respond in ways that touch and transform your heart. Jesus was a genius at this. Listen as Josh does a wonderful job in unpacking the way Jesus used empathy to reach and connect with those around him. You will be blessed.
