"A Song of degrees of David. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!

How far is a question we often ask ourselves before we take one of those notable trips we all sometimes take. We are often asked "How far is it to your place of employment?" or maybe one of our kids or grandkids will ask, "How far is it to MacDonalds?" Maybe. Have you ever been … Continue reading How Far?
