When Time Stands Still
The Book of Joshua, Chapter 10. We're going to mention today an episode that, uh, we looked at as we preach through the Book of Joshua, and I'm entitling the message today "When Time Stands Still." "When Time Stands Still." I like to hear those pages flutter. That's a good sign that you have your Bible in your hand.
