Take Up Your Cross Daily and Follow Christ
The Rev. Michael J. Moffitt
June 19, 2022

"Whether that path involves "taking up the cross," "losing one's life" or "not being ashamed of the Son of Man," disciples need to understand that life in the world will not involve an easy, stressless trip into glory."   
Rev. Michael J.Moffitt
