    It seems Isaac was laughed at in one way or another all his life. Isaac means "laughter". What an appropriate name. A river of LAUGHTER runs through the entire story of the birth of Isaac.

    An overview of the story of Jonah’s missionary travels, and how his attitude kept getting in the way of God’s plan.

    Introduction. What is it we think of when people mention the story of Jonah? I guess a lot of people think about the fish. Others think about the plant that grew and then died.

This year we remember ...read more
