Blind Beggars All

Love is Patient by Jen Norton

In today’s readings we hear of a God that is supernatural—that surpasses our conception of nature and her cycle. Promises of plenty, healing, peace, and virtuous attributes that extend beyond man’s life under heaven echo throughout time and place in each of the three texts.

Let me elaborate on this….For more, click on the title above.
