Happy Place

Posted by Scott Foster on

Back during the election cycle, Facebook was a miserable place to be. Exhausting. It was all just too much. Misinformation, real-life fake news, and not the kind the president accuses the media of. This was real propaganda made-up stuff. And because of it, there was too much hate floating...

30The apostles gathered around Jesus, and told him all that they had done and taught. 31He said to them, "Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while." For many were coming and going, and they had no leisure even to eat. 32And they went away in the boat to a...
