What if the ugly stepsister married the prince?

What if the wolf huffed and puffed and really blew the pig’s house down.

If asked you this morning to tell me a story about one of your ancestors, what kind of story would you tell?

What about the patriachs of this church?

Mr. Lawson, Mr. Brunner, Doc McCormick, Mr. Whaley

What kind of story would you tell?

Well, yeah he was a spiritual man but let me tell you about how he used to kick his dog.

Yeah, she was a godly woman, but she loved to tell a juicy story.

No - Positive

So when we come across a negative story we need to pay attention.
