On Take Five today, RZIM speaker Shawn Hart takes a closer look at what assumptions lie behind our admiration of courage and sacrifice in the face of fear. Shawn reveals to us that because all human beings are created unique in the image of God, we can observe our world and see places where human beings are making visible the characteristics of God.
