Approaching God Through Christ (Part Two)

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Richard Ritenbaugh, reflecting on the exploration of Lewis and Clark, asks whether we would have what it takes to help in the exploration, such as having health, strength, courage, motivation, observant, patient, and enduring hardships.
