The Respite of Christian Friendship

When the Apostle Paul traveled from Athens to Corinth, he became acquainted with Aquila and Priscilla, a married couple who shared Paul’s occupation as a tentmaker, and his identity as a Jew. And [Paul] found a certain Jew named Aquila, born in Pontus, lately come from Italy, with his wife Priscilla; (because that Claudius had… Continue reading The Respite of Christian Friendship

Living What We Blog

Something I appreciate about the WordPress world is that its members present themselves as far less gilded and glossy than those who primarily use other social media platforms.
