    Note that the author of The Life Project is currently working his with through Ecclesiastes. Don Merritt is a first rate Bible expositor. Since Ecclesiastes is difficult to understand, but well worth studying, I intend to check out the rest of the series. I hope I will see some of my readers there too.

  5. I guess it could be said that patience is settling our selves into the knowledge that God is in the drivers seat especially in our time. We might tear civilization apart but God has already ordered what comes next when we do.
