#CY365 Currently reading – Revelation

Last Saturday the #CY365 photo prompt was “Currently Reading.” Two of the books I’m reading are the Bible book of Revelation along with Discipleship on the Edge by Darrell Johnson—a book about Revelation (which two of our pastors are teaching a class of seniors and others on Tuesday afternoons).

Five Cinquains
