We (Consumed) say often that we value relationships. This isn’t just some spiritual phrase we throw around to sound good. We truly value the relationships God has formed both organizationally and more importantly…the friendships we have formed with people all over the world.

Your Faith is Greater Than Mine

From Rob Stearns I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time–the many ways to Heaven/Paradise/the afterlife.
