Witness to These Things
by Peter Andrew Smith
Acts 5:27-32

“You need to stop,” Jodi said. “You’re embarrassing yourself.”

Cindy looked up at the three girls surrounding her table in the High School cafeteria. “What are you talking about?”

This Sunday’s lessons proclaim that God and his resurrection have their way with us.
