When we paused in this discussion last week, we were talking about the presence of the Lord as it manifested in the cloud. This is a discussion that could take us way off track if we followed the rabbit trail, but I'm really just wanting to draw some illustrations for you to help in understanding what Jesus means when He speaks of "the pure in heart."

Need to share a personal story with you as a lead-in to today's Coffee Break. It was December 5, 1960 that I joined the Army.
