The Promise of Renewal

Spiritual Renewal

It is often said that, because of the way human cells regenerate themselves, every seven to ten years we are completely new people.

Habakkuk CG Photo

Where is God when times are tough? Why does the Lord allow pain and injustice to occur? Does God have a plan for this world? Is God at work behind the scenes in ways we cannot see?
