Only a Boy Named David

Only a boy named David.  And yet prepared by God as a boy for his future work, work that included leading God’s people Israel as king, as well as writing Psalm 23, the theme of this year’s convention.  It is this preparation of David by God that we consider now. There are especially two events […]
