Elder Perry Ross’ sister is Loretta Ross, Executive Director of the Sanctuary Foundation for Prayer and a contemplative. She shares some wisdom about where the people of God need to direct their attention. Put in REALM terms, a Right Relationship with God allows the church to engage in right relationships with new generations.
