Growing into the Faith

June 12, 2022 ……….Trinity Sunday ………. Rev. Patrick Mecham Romans 5: 1-5; John 16: 12-15 A philosopher named Friedrich Nietzsche once wrote a phrase that has been quoted since the 1880’s: “That which does not kill me makes me stronger.”  In the 1990’s, Disney produced an animated film called “Aladdin,” and the parrot (Iago) put his own spin on the saying, “You’d be surprised what you can live through!” Just recently, I heard a “Seasoned-Citizen” saying something similar: “Getting old…
