Paige interviewed Dan Taylor who shared how he joined the church when he was 8yrs old when his parents started coming along.  He was brought up in a Christian home but it was at New Day Christian camp that he was encouraged to explore the truth and relevance of faith for himself.  This started him on an 18-month journey of reading books and studying the words of great theologians before he felt convicted to take the step of faith and get baptised.  He shared that he thinks faith that accommodates doubts gives strength to it rather than undermines it - 6th September - watch
