Tom considers himself fortunate to know the love of God through His Son Jesus Christ, and he seeks to respond to God’s love with his entire life. He treasures being part of The Spring and going deeper into Christ. He is grateful for times of worship and study at the Spring, and he considers it a privilege to learn to do justice and mercy together.
