by Pete Nelson on August 7th, 2020
Every day we are flooded with information: there is a presidential race, constant political posturing, prejudice and racial tension, and for extra fun a virus that keeps on giving. What on earth is the Lord doing?Well – for one thing – nothing new. It was Solomon who penned the words, “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun” (Eccles...
