Holding true to our faith in Him

RICHMOND — Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; and having an high priest over the house of God; let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.

Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering, for he is faithful that promised

— Heb 10:19-23

    I often flash back to the days from the mid to late 1930s when I was a paper boy.
