    Windows have been much in my mind the last couple of weeks. The windows in the hall that had rotten frames have all been replaced. But we have hit a snag with the fire escape at the back. The replacement doors are too big and do not fit, this was not discovered until after the old ones had been more

    There’s no getting around the fact that today’s text contains a part that strikes us as humorous, and the fact of the matter is that sometimes, we can do some funny things in church. A preacher was completing a temperance sermon: with great expression he said, “If I had all the beer in the more
