How do we reconcile our belief in the Lord of creation with some of our Christian doctrines?

Posted by on May 13, 2019 in Reflections | No Comments

I love this question because it offers so many words that are a part of the language of faith – and – it gets at one of the largest tensions people of faith face as they seek to live their lives faithfully and in the modern world.  It is always important to remember that doctrines […]
