Who Speaks for the Fallen?

“Though he is fallen asleep, God will not leave him In this forgetfulness. Awakened, he Will laugh to think what troublous dreams he had… Who, when the appointed Day shall dawn, escapes From dark imaginings that haunted him, And turns with laughter on his phantom griefs When he beholds his everlasting home.” Rumi – The Progress of Man Who speaks for the Fallen?

But there’s no mistaking their passion, faith, and even joy in extraordinary difficulties. Paul says “I’ve learned to be content in all circumstances – in plenty and in want…” So there are really two sides to Thanksgiving. Cher joins Norm in studio for this truthful, faith-building and even sobering… Read More
