I have covered the tragic murder of Pastor Fred Winters because I was encouraged by the attitude of the pastor towards faith and vision. I wish I had known him, because I’m sure he would have inspired me even more. Much has been written about his family and I’ve shied away from that subject not wanting to sensationalize their grief, but then I found this video.
Last Sunday I preached a message on the difference in having circumstantial faith and in trusting God completely even when everything around us screams otherwise. (You can watch that HERE.) Cindy Winters, the widow of Reverend Winters, is a perfect example of this kind of steady faith. She takes a tragedy and uses it as an opportunity to share her faith in Jesus Christ! Wow! Listen to her story. She gives the recipe of going through the worst times of life.
