A blizzard has smashed his way into my city and he's making so much noise, he must be drunk. This is fine by me. I'm elbow deep in a new short story. But all this sitting on a Monday morning simply feels like an extended Sunday... so why not catch up on some Bible Study? Here are some particularly juicy passages from one of the most underrated books in the Bible... Numbers
