    I love our times of fellowship, don’t you? We joke all the time about how much Baptists love to eat, but I think that one of the reasons we like to eat so much is because of the fellowship that goes along with it. Those times are wonderful and I wouldn’t trade anything in the world ...read more

    Week before last, we started looking at this little book of Haggai. And we saw how the Jewish remnant had been in exile in Babylon for many years.
