Weekly Reflection – A Faith To Die For

Weekly Reflection – A Faith To Die For

Do you have a faith to die for? I have spent the past week on the shore of a peaceful lake in East Texas, where I pondered the subject of belief and why we believe what we believe when we believe it.  The bottom line is that I found myself believing less but more firmly. What…
