Today I’m chatting with Gloria Furman on the global Church. So you’ll know her a little better, Gloria (MACE, Dallas Theological Seminary) is a wife, mother of four, cross-cultural worker, editor, and writer. In 2008 her family moved to the Middle East to plant Redeemer Church of Dubai where her husband, Dave, serves as the pastor. Gloria’s one of those women who oozes Scripture when she speaks. Throughout our friendship, many of the nuggets of wisdom she’s shared with me have really helped to reorient my thinking towards eternity.

God’s faithfulness in the past is a model and a promise for his faithfulness in the future, but he is too creative to do the same thing the same way twice. So no matter what comes it is God who does not change. There is no more steadying truth than looking at the unchanging character of God.
