When God Gets Loose
Jerry Watts
Acts 2:14-39

When we lived in Biloxi, we got a dog and our daughter named her ''Dutchess.'' I'm not so sure whether ''Dutchess'' was the dog's name or position!! For me, dogs belong outside, but not Dutchess.

I think of the parting of Red Sea. Most people envision this as Moses throwing up his rod and like 'magic', the dry path through the water appeared, but the Bible says, ''The wind Blew all night.'' Living on the coast, we know about wind. You can tell something is happening when you hear the wind.
