This Week:

Foundations of the Christian Life: Faith


Something to think about: How can we believe that there is a God? The answer is simple: just stop and look around you. What you see are miracles, one after another: children, a world that sustains us using unbelievably intricate systems, and our own innate desire to love and be loved.


Scripture

Proverbs 3: 5 - 8

Hebrews 11: 1 - 12: 2

Matthew 17: 14 - 20
