  • By Nancy Kennedy, faith columnist

    Back in 2001, my pastor announced to the congregation, “You don’t know God.”

    He went on to say, “If you think there’s somebody too hard for God to reach or a situation too difficult for him to fix, then you don’t know God. You don’t know what he’s able and willing to do in a person’s life.”
