Father Jörgensen’s Questionings

A week ago, I was asked to baptize an infant later that morning. I have misgivings about it because nowhere in the Bible is there any such thing as infant baptism. Jesus wasn't baptized until He was thirty years old. As a baby, He was dedicated to the Lord. Last night I read every scripture …

The Abandoned Barn

It was Sunday afternoon and they had decided to go for a drive since it was such a beautiful day. They ventured outside of London and ended up in a rural area where they espied what looked like an abandoned barn.
