“Even so the aroma of Christianity is even subtler than the rose and should, therefore, be imparted even in a quieter and more imperceptible manner, if possible.”

    • In the past, I especially apreciated the parables. In the present age, I feel so much of Jesus’ message is either lost, mis-undersoood, or worse, mis-represented.

      I’m with you David, in working to cultivate soil rich in compassion and understanding. Amen.
