Forging my faith

One of the great men who helped shape my spiritual life is Brennan Manning. This week is dedicate to his life. His story has impacted my life and given me hope of living a ragamuffin faith. His thoughts have forced my faith forward…

“For love of you I left my Father’s side. I came to you who ran from me, who fled me, who did not want to hear my name. For love of you I was covered with spit, punched and beaten, and fixed to the wood of the cross.”

“Once you come to know the love of Jesus Christ, nothing else in the world will seem as beautiful or desireable.” 

My hope is you would at least one of his books listed here and be challenged!
