The Reason We Persevere

Pastor Resources
  In his book Nothing Like it in the World, Stephen Ambrose writes about the building of the transcontinental railroad in America. It was a monumentally ambitious vision, the linking of the nation’s two coasts by rail. In 1863, at the beginning of the project, some California enthusiasts decided to sponsor a launch ceremony. They […]
