“All glory be to the One is always working in our waiting and whose wisdom, power, and love are worthy of all our trust,” Platt concluded.
The author of “Radical: Taking Back Your Faith From the American Dream,” Platt has long been an advocate for simple, sacrificial living, as well as international missions. Before becoming pastor of McLean Bible Church in Vienna, Virginia, he served as president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s International Mission Board.
