macrinawiederkehr.com Not long ago, at a church dinner and bazaar, my love for pottery drew me to a display of earthenware bowls. “Ah,” I thought, “I can both satisfy my longing for a new piece of pottery and support this church function.” Someone beside me looked at the bowl I was holding and said, “You don’t …
When you pray, make every attempt to be utterly in your prayer. Here are some intercessions for you today as you are browsing through Facebook posts. Please pause for prayer. It is a pause for which you can be grateful:
