Looking back over the past year, I’ve chosen some of my favourite posts that I wrote during 2017. Advertisements
The Bible doesn’t use the word ‘eclipse’, but does describe the effects of both solar and lunar eclipses. This is a good example of how, as we understand more about the world, we understand more about the Bible as well.
During his inaugural address President Trump stated that “we are protected by God”. But, is that true? What does it mean?
Looking back over the last year it’s good to reflect on the highlights, as well as the struggles. As part of that, I’ve again chosen my favourite posts from the past year.
