JR Forasteros ~ Can People Change? I Believe in the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the God who gives us new life. To believe in the Spirit is to commit not to try to change people (because we can’t…only God can). 

We love each other by holding space for people to feel safe enough to be honest with us, with themselves and with God.  Faith is not self-help: only God can really change us.
