A Life to Die For
SPEAKER: Pastor Clarence Schilt
We all are "living" our lives, but are we just surviving
 or are we living a life to die for? 
"To die for" is an idiom or figure of speech that describes something so desirable and attractive that it is worth dying for.
 On Renewal Sabbath, Pastor Clarence Schilt will lead us through a series of presentations that will give us 
new ways to look at our relationship with Jesus, our life, and our relationships that will result in a life "to die for".
