Aging


We talk so much about those who have come before us and transmitted the Christian faith to us. We honor them regularly. But, we don't often talk about how these people are living, breathing, clay vessels just like we are.

Today, we interrupt our regularly scheduled weekly breather to honor one who has paved the way for many to be saved, many to be healed, and many to be discipled. In light of Sunday being All Saints' Day, we would like to take a moment and tell you about one of those saints. With this post, we begin our Legacy of Faith series.
