Wednesday’s Word: Babbling Fools?

If you’ve ever traveled overseas, you’ll know how exhausting it can be to try to communicate in a language you don’t know very well. I’ve been known to break out in an actual sweat on a cold winter’s day in Japan, trying with every cell in my body to remember the few words I know in Japanese! Maybe God knew that we’d be in trouble if communicating was too easy. . . .

Listen to the story of a group of people whose ability to communicate easily got themselves in big trouble with God, from Genesis 11:1-9.

For friends new to this blog, “Wednesday’s Word” is a weekly Bible audio clip that rotates between Genesis, Luke and Psalms. Periodically, I post a word from the Bible on what it means to be wise in “Wednesday’s Word to the Wise,” in honor of Sophie Topfeather, the main character of my upcoming children’s series.

On Sundays, I post an article-type post on themes in the novels: faith, friendship, diversity, etc. Thanks for reading!
