Faith

Are you discouraged or angry about the events of this world?
Have you lost contact with your faith?
Begin to rekindle it to find hope. Love and peace.
Our world, our life is temporary. Our creator, our God is eternal.
Trust in eternity.
All is well.
Peace and love to you my friends.

2 Timothy 3:14
But you, remain faithful to what you have learned and believed, because you know from whom you learned it.
There are many similarities between the times of Saint Paul and our own. Living a Christian life was a conscious choice and was not supported by society at large. Christians were faced with many temptations to turn from their beliefs or to grow lax in the practice of their faith. Paul exhorts Timothy (and us) to be faithful to what we have learned and believed about Jesus. Our gathering for Eucharist is a way we strengthen our faith, as well as support one another for our common mission as disciples. Our individual faithfulness builds a stronger faith community.
Where do I find strength for living my Christian faith?
