Last weekend 29 ladies went to Thailand for a ladies retreat themed "Running the Race." What a time of refreshment, laughter and connection. Connections were made to both our Lord and to one another. On the home front Pastor Matthew spoke on having faith. By definition, "faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." (Hebrews 11:1) Oh how these passages come together, for we need our faith to run the race. As you run your race this week, whatever obstacles you face, may you "run in such a way as to get the prize...run with perseverance the race marked out for you."
