Luke 5:36–39 (NIV) 36 He told them this parable: “No one tears a piece out of a new garment to patch an old one.

“Why did you help me?”
“Land” is a movie focusing on a woman in grief. Robin Wright plays a woman who has suffered a deep loss, but we don’t know why.

The cabin is completelyContinue reading ““Why did you help me?””
