Grace and Healing on 9-11: Praying for the 9-11 Terrorists

I have been going through a period of deep spiritual struggle.  It has been the kind of struggle that bears much fruit.  These struggles are deepening my faith and teaching me to rely on Christ’s will for me, rather than my own will.  My eyes have been truly opened to different aspects of Christ’s betrayal […]

What 9-11 Means to Me This Year: From a Relief Worker
