A Joyful Outing That I Almost Wrecked

My friends from church had planned a great outing to the park, peddling a four-seat surrey around the lake. However,  the whole thing almost didn’t come off, because of a joke taken the wrong way.

The Trees of Life

In the Bible, we learn the names of two trees in Paradise. One is the tree of knowledge of good and evil, which had fruit pleasing to the eye, but which also led to mankind’s downfall by partaking of it. The other tree we know as the tree of life, which had fruit on it […]
