  • At The King’s Table

    DANIEL AND THE KING’S OFFICER It was night in Babylon. The soldiers patrolling the walls had called the hour of midnight, and the watchmen in the towers had answered, “All is well.” Even a cock in the distance had saluted this hour of darkness with a lusty crow. It was the time to be at […]
