Tales from the Mountain – December 2020

Pastor John’s View It was still dark but I quietly slipped into Harry’s room and gently shook his shoulder. Is it time? Can we get up? My older brother grumpily mumbled, Go back to bed. I would repeat this several times in the dark until the pale, pastel dawn blue began to push out the black of night away and Harry finally said, Yes, it’s time, go get Kathy.
