View from the Pulpit

Fletcher, Adrin
July 2006
Munday Courier (TX);7/19/2006, Vol. 33 Issue 34, p2
The author, while reflecting on the ancient walls built to protect the territory, compares it with the wall built by human being which keeps away the friends, family and neighbors. The author describes the pathetic state of most historic walls in England, especially the Hadrian's Wall which is a relic of the great Roman Empire. The author concludes that faith in Jesus and obedience to his words can work wonders and help human beings break out of walls they have created.
