    First in a six-part series on the life of faith as seen in the person of Abraham

    OK, here’s the story: man worships many gods; man hears voice of real God speaking; man drops everything he’s doing and moves away; man has kid at 100 years of age to 90-year-old wife.

    Fifth in a six-part series on the life of faith as seen in the person of Abraham

    Cross a pessimist with a comedian and you get Woody Allen. His brand of off-beat, self-deprecating, hang-dog humor can be sometimes insightful, sometimes depressing, but usually, pretty funny.
