If we're gonna fly, we fly like eagles
Arms out wide
If we're gonna fear, we fear no evil
We will rise
By Your power, we will go
By Your Spirit, we are bold
If we're gonna stand, we stand as giants
If we're gonna walk, we walk as lions
We walk as lions
[Skillet, Lions, from the album Unleashed



Short textual doodles on life, love, and everything else. Each rambling is only two or three paragraphs, or less, intended to be a starting point for your own exploration of faith in daily living.


What if the Christmas characters could tell us their experience of that night in their own words? What would they remember? What would they tell us?


Short stories about about life, love, and a lot in-between. The characters are fictional, the situations sometimes very familiar. Archangels, little boys, fugitives and rascals. Christmas stories, school days and a young man saying goodbye. Ordinary people, coming face to face with eternity. May their stories inspire you!


So, after years of drifting along, you have rediscovered your faith, and this time you want it to be more than another nice experience - you want it to last beyond the initial excitement and become a way of life. That's what prompted me to write this: a workbook on rediscovering what faith is all about, and making it last. Thirteen studies built around the songs on Downhere's album "On The Altar Of Love".
