Conversation: How To "DO" Faith with Pastor Michele Dunn, Part 1
Hey friends! I’m so happy to bring you this conversation episode with my Pastor, friend, mentor, and stan-in-mom, Pastor Michele Dunn. In church we’re told to have faith. What exactly does that mean?! If faith means to believe, then what am I believing in and HOW do I “just believe”?
This first half of the conversation focuses on the fact that the only "work" for God is believing in the one He sent, Jesus. That we can’t strive or worry our way to faith, but learn to ONLY believe what the Word says regardless of evidence to the contrary; Hebrews 11:1.
There are so many nuggets of wisdom from Michele in this conversation because she KNOWS the Word and it just flows out of her!
