By the Beacon's Light

"Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see." — Hebrews 11:1

In his letter to the Hebrews, Paul explained that faith is not merely believing that God exists, but is trusting in Him to guide us and care for us, no matter what our earthly senses tell us about our circumstances or the situations we face. To live with that deep level of trust is to live by faith.

In the following pages, you’ll meet people whose faith has been tested and refined by life’s blessings and by life’s tragedies, and others whose faith shapes not only their own lives, but also the lives of everyone with whom they come into contact. What all have in common is their trust in God to guide and care for them, and their commitment to living by that faith.
