Guide To The Great Unknown
I want you to take God's precious Word and turn with me please to Joshua and if you failed to bring a Bible with you, look there n the pew rack before you. Most likely there is one there. And find the book of Joshua, relatively near the front of the Old Testament. Chapter 3. Now we're facing a brand new year. And we don't know what that year is going to bring.
