By Faith and Courage

"Christianity is not a matter of persuading people of particular ideas, but of inviting them to share in the greatness of Christ. So pray that I may never fall into the trap of impressing people with clever speech, but instead I may learn to speak with humility, desiring only to impress people with Christ himself."
— St. Ignatius of Antioch

Wonderful story! So glad you heeded His Call, Michael; keep pressing on to eventually finish The Race. Btw, Algebra wasn't my strength, either.
