  • place where it started.
  • 00:16:00.676 --> 00:16:03.946
  • And they stayed close to theplace where it started so long
  • 00:16:03.979 --> 00:16:08.851

  • Lest they stay in Jerusalem.
  • 00:16:36.412 --> 00:16:38.981
  • The problem with the churchtoday is that we stay in
  • 00:16:39.014 --> 00:16:45.687
  • Jerusalem, and we stay toourselves, and we stay where we
  • 00:16:45.721 --> 00:16:49.825
  • know all the songs, and we staywhere the people worship like

  • us, and we stay where weunderstand the customs, and we
  • 00:16:53.295 --> 00:16:56.198
