What we believe shapes the way we live. The way we live reveals our convictions about God, the world, and our place in it. We see many happy reminders that our father made this world and everything good in it. But we also see painful reminders of sin distorting what he has made. As My Father's World shows, all is not lost--our father is at work in his world and in us.
