  • Ten Years Later

    from Tim Challies Sep 06, 2011 Category: Tabletalk Magazine

    The world has changed. We are not the same people we were on September 10, 2001. The events of September 11, 2001, and the events that followed in ensuing years have not only changed America but nations and peoples throughout the world. People are more afraid and less naïve.

People experience this second blessing through surrender and faith: “Let go and let God.” Keep Reading
