When the People Come Knockin’

Today, a very nice Jehovah’s Witness woman came knocking at my door, seeking to share a good word with me. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a religious person approach my home this way. But not too long ago, a nice young lady from a different country came up the steps, rang the bell, and […]
