Last night we continued to dig into scripture together, focusing on Genesis 3. In every good story, there is a problem that’s in the process of being solved. For Harry Potter, that problem is Voldemort. For Bilbo Baggins and company, that problem is Sauron and the Ring. For the Pevensey children, it’s the White Witch […]
