Your Friday 4-Course Meal

Appetizer (a quick bite): Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic by Faith Gorsky. I've seen this recipe (or similar ones) posted many times, and I'm curious, but I've never tried it. I need to try it. You try it too, and let me know what you think if you beat me to it. ;-)

Entree (something to chew on for awhile): Consumerism Keeps Us Fed and Starving by Gloria Furman. Wise and convicting.

Dessert (just for fun): This is crazy town.

Coffee (sip and savor slowly and repeatedly): Christian mothers, your child may be far away from the sheltering home, voyaging on the stormy sea, or dwelling in some distant climate beyond your voice. But he is still within the reach of the mightiest power a mother can wield – the power of prayer! And although you cannot throw around him your maternal arms to shield him from the evil of the world, you can invest him with your wrestling believing petitions, and secure on his behalf the Arm which encircles the globe, and is mighty to save. Oh that the Church of God may be filled with such praying mothers! --Octavius Winslow
