    We've been doing this daily redemption blog for over a month now.  We hope the experience has been as gratifying for you as it has been for us.  If, by some chance, you are still confused on what redemption really is, than we implore you to watch this video of our Services from Friday night.  At the core of our mission is the principle that nobody is un-redeemable.  If one person can be helped from that mission than we have done our job.  Enjoy!
