A Matter of Instruction
By Ted Schroeder
Paul wrote, “I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink.

It is my fondest wish that God’s children be happy . . .
