Hebrews 11:29-12:2

Description

Tom Long (Bandy Preaching Professor at Chandler School of Theology) opens his musings on this passage by asking, "What Cloud? What Witnesses?" This is perhaps another way to ask, who is it that informs our faith and where are our spiritual roots planted? When the preacher begins to talk about the "race that is set before us..." I imagine a cosmic relay race where each competitor strives for a clean baton pass and does their very best with their leg of the race. To do our best, we must persevere without losing focus on what's truly important.
