WEEK ONE: The Creed DAY 2: Trusting God’s Word (Scripture and Tradition) If someone claims to have authority to perform a very important task, we want to know that we can trust that individual.

Since that time, some folks have found the retreat archived here on my blog and have begun participating at their own pace. Luckily, I am notified that they have joined in and can offer a personal […]
