Forerunner: Preparing Christians for the Kingdom of God

May 1997
Volume 6, Number 5

On Fridays evenings, the setting sun heralds the beginning of another Sabbath day of rest, refreshment and reorientation toward God.

If we use it properly, it is a day of spiritual creation and liberty.  (Corel Photo)
