John 16v16-33 - Joy - A principle, a promise, a practice

From Series: "John 13-17 - Jesus' Teaching For Tough Times Ahead"

This series picks up what is known as Jesus' Farewell Discourse (traditionally John 14-17) and also includes the introductory chapter where Jesus shows, in many ways, what it means to truly love one another.

It teaches us how to maintain our joy when everything around us might be caving in.
