Wrapping Up Lent: "Destiny" And "Death"

What does the enlightened evangelist put in her kit bag for performing Christian witness in a skeptical age?

Fourth up was honest reflection on the legacies of our parents. Finally, we realized that they minister best who accept the inevitability and powerlessness of death.
