  • Cloud of Unknowing

    Edward Martin|Aug 10, 2023

    Sometimes we assume we have all the answers and folks from the distant past have nothing to teach us. That’s especially true when we have to distill the meaning from unfamiliar language and expressions. Even writings from a hundred years ago in English can be difficult because the writer expressed thoughts in ways far removed from our way of speaking today.

The Bible also says words can bring personal trouble, be the small spark tha...
