A weekend leisure reading review…because sometimes Pastors also need a break from heavy theological reading!  Finally a Batman review for some of you fans!  I haven’t read any comics for months but got to read this for this long holiday weekend, this has bee a busy season of ministry.

they and every animal according to its kind, and all the livestock according to their kind, and every crawling thing that crawls on the earth according to its kind, and every bird according to its kind, all sorts of birds. 15 So they went into the ark to Noah, by twos of all flesh in which there was the breath of life.” (Genesis 7:14-15)


You shall take with you seven pairs of every clean animal, a male and his female; and two of the animals that are not clean, a male and his female;” (Genesis 7:2)
