On Endurance.

Posted by Gary Pauley on

“For whatever was written in the past was written for our instruction, so that we may have hope through endurance and through the encouragement from the Scriptures.”    As Bill and I were talking in his kitchen it occurred to me that I had known him since the 1970s. We...
