Don't Jettison the Good Parts of Faith


Sometimes fervent, youthful faith can't make the journey into our adulthood, maybe because of life's suffering.

But some of us then feel consequential loss, because feeling close to God, in good times and bad, felt great. Looking at the life of Harriet Tubman and focusing on Jesus's advice in his so-called "Farewell Discourse," Dave Schmelzer suggests that a lifetime of continual spiritual growth by no means needs to lose the best parts of our most heartfelt experience of God.
