Texting With Paul – In Harmony

Over the past few Thursday’s we’ve been traveling together  down a new fork along our shared path.  It began with my introduction of the “21st Century Epistle ”, as I speculated about how the messages of the communiques edited together in the Bible might be disseminated if the Apostle Paul were here today.

Viikko Tarkastelussa

Well I hope I got that right. I’m trusting Google Translate to help me. I’m running out  of creative ways to say “Week In Review” and apparently if I were in Finland that’s how it would be said.
