"We live by faith, not by sight." - St. Paul

Faith has many faces. Faith can be seen in a single mother doing all she can to raise her children and maintain a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Faith can be seen in the work place from one who chooses to be generous and compassionate rather than seek that promotion at all costs. Faith is expressed when a student is a constant encouragement to others on her cheerleading squad. Faith is expressed when a teacher can use his art to share what God is doing in his life with his students at school.

The picture above was taken at Refuge Wednesday night as Mark, an art teacher at a local high school, used an art piece he's working on to share what God is doing in his life. It was so awesome, especially because there were 1-2 people who aren't part of our church family that know him as a teacher.

What are some different faces of faith you have seen?

Chad, you sound so happy and energetic in your ministry. "Refuge", what a great name for a time of worship. That art teacher can be such a great influence on your students. So glad you are doing well. The girls look good too and like they are adjusting to LR quite well. Give Deana and the girls a big hug from me. I still have plans to come visit one day. Maybe we can go that Pork Cafe. Kim would love it.

Thanks for the comments. I love listening to others' who's faith expression is very different than mine. It always keeps me so energize and renewed when I hear, see or experience faith in new ways. I love guys like Mark who show me a whole other faith expression.

Beverly, I'd love to have Sam in my youth group. I love that he gets to be with Mercer though. I have a whole lot of love and respect for my friend, Michael.
