As we begin 2021, we would do well to reflect on the singular year 2020 has been. While most of us think of 2020 only in negative terms, it’s important to look back and see how God was at work. In these final posts of 2020, we’ll share TD’s 20/20 – the 20 most viewed videos on the TD channel and 20 most viewed TD Blog posts in 2020! They are enriching.
Today, we’ll share 2020’s most viewed TD videos (irrespective of when the videos were originally posted). Enjoy and be blessed!
