Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word about Christ.
Stage 9 will be a individual time trial that is 41.5 km. Beginning in Arc-et-Senans and ending in Besançon. Besancon is found in the the region of Franche-Comté. Yesterday we ended in Switzerland, but today they travel along the border as fast as they can. Our lives can be like a time trial, we spend our days going as fast as we can being busy with our daily lives without much time to hear.
Lord, help us all to slow down and take the time to listen to your word. Our faith will grow the more we listen. Open our ears and hearts so we can hear the message you have for us today here in Besançon. We pray all these things in the name of Jesus. Amen.
