“By faith” - Hebrews 11 tells us God created the universe by something unseen in His mind. All that we see began as an idea. If we read on we find that all the great acts of Scripture were also completed by faith. Faith is the assurance that what is in born the heart can be made physical. It is the imagination. In this episode Dave and Boris teach students how to practice that faith muscle.
