A MIGHTY FORTRESS is our God!

Hey, do you know that great hymn, "A Mighty Fortress Is Our God"? Do you know where Martin Luther gained his inspiration? From Psalm 46!

What with pestilences, plagues, and ginormous locust swarms hitting the earth along with political and economic turmoil, we absolutely NEED to memorize this psalm for comfort and confidence. Take a listen to Jay the Truth Barista as he and Larry talk about Psalm 46 and what it means to them.
