Faith and Doubt - let's be real!
In November we continue to look at some biblical patterns for being “real” with God. We discovered that “doubt” can be an aspect of faith—not the opposite of it. As the writer to the Hebrews reminds us (in 11:1) “... faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.”
You can continue the dialogue on-line by asking to join the closed group (CFSR Serious Seekers) to post questions, comments and give feedback.
What a privilege (and responsibility) we have in CFSR as we seek to fulfil Jesus’ command to be His witnesses— together and individually—in Siem Reap.
At the end of the month we will begin our preparation for celebrating Christ’s coming at the first Christmas with our Advent Series.
