A Kingdom #Alternative to Halloween #wordstudywednesday

First, let’s define the word alternative. Webster’s 1828 Dictionary: alternative, n. “That which may be chosen or omitted; a choice of two things, so that if one is taken, the other must be left.

Athanasius Christian Biographies for Young Readers- #Reformation Day Blog Series

Enemies lurked and made false accusations out of their spite for the bishop. At times, the government made decisions against his favor for political gain.
