David & Goliath … and the major player often excluded from the story

This past Sunday, Daryn Kinney preached a great message on the story of David and Goliath. And to underscore that this account is often one only examined when one is in children’s ministry, he even passed out a page from a coloring book that showed the Israelite shepherd taking on the Philistine giant. You can […]
