She Kept Her Faith

“Love is but a song we sing

Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another right now”
Get Together Lyrics by The Youngbloods … More She Kept Her Faith

Welcome to Finding Courage, Hope, and Faith in Changing Times

Whether you are a believer or an agnostic, I want you to know that it is not Jesus that has turned HIS back on you, it’s the churches that have always held to their racism, sexism, white supremacy, misogyny beliefs in the shadows. Trump has given them the support and encouragement to come out of the shadows with their beliefs that are not the beliefs of Jesus.
