Week in Reflection / You're not alone

Encouragement for the week from a unique perspective

30 years as a parish pastor, 40 years being blind has given Dave Andrus a unique and refreshing view of the world, situations and God. Taking something
that happened that week, sometimes good, sometimes bad, often something that a person who is blind faces, Pastor Dave shares encouragement, hope and
still another way to look at it.
