Cloud of Witnessess

The faith we admire in others is not beyond us, but includes us as well. With the "great cloud of witnesses" around us, we can "run with perseverance the race that is set before us."

Planting Sequoias

Faith calls us into something of which we may never see the fullness in our lifetimes. As we remember those who have shaped our faith, we witness the beauty of "seeing and welcoming" the promises of God, even "from a distance."

The Blessing of Books and Belief

Witnessing how those who have gone before us have lived by faith can help us understand what faith is in our own lives; "faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see."
