Take heart my brothers & sisters in Christ! Though we sometimes feel it in deeply secular and progressive Nashville, we are not alone. I was invigorated by this week’s clergy conference. Christ’s church stands firm on the teachings of the apostles. — From womb to tomb “God created man in his own image […] male and female he created them.” God saves the nations in the once offered sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the way to eternal life. — Against abortion, destruction of the body, and the idols of the self, sexual pleasure, and the love and service of money we can stand boldly. In our little corner of the Church, the gates of hell have indeed not prevailed. Take heart and continue forth in the work Christ has set before you. We are not alone and the Spirit goes with us!
