This video on The Flow, bilingual in English & Amharic, shows how Christians grow, how to detect where they are in their spiritual growth and what they need for further spiritual growth. The power of this presentation is in the overall view of the whole Christian life, and its use of a familiar analogy to help us apply it to our spiritual lives.
