    This I believe…This I believe…This I believe…This I believe. I just finished reading four essays about the beliefs of others from around the world. Each belief unique; each belief eye opening. Parades, rice, jewelry boxes and bus rides all turned into life lessons. I found myself nodding, laughing and in awe of how a person could take one simple thing and make it so much more.

    so hard to be accepted, and for the world to say what they 're doing is right, so for a Christian they don’t trust to tell them otherwise will offend them. Its better not to offend them right away and build a solid friendship because the gospel message will offend them plenty. Jeff Johnson from “Focus on the Family” says, “Your friend is a man or woman with complex fears, hopes and needs. Look beyond the “gay” or “lesbian” label to the whole person inside. Rather than seeing your friend as a…
