My dad was born left-handed, or cack-handed as they say in his native England. In the US he'd probably be called a southpaw. I did not inherit that particular gene or trait. I read that about 10% of the population is left-handed, and my dad [...]

About three weeks ago I read a book about expository preaching and felt-need preaching, in which the author quoted Psalm 119:130, "The unfolding of your words gives light; it imparts understanding to the simple" (ESV). It is that word "unfolding" that my mind won't let [...]
