Cut Off (Leviticus 17)

            “…he shall be cut off from the people.” A little girl and her grandfather went one day to the park to fly a kite.  It was a sunny day and a gentle breeze was flowing from the south; an ideal situation for flying kites indeed! Her beautiful kite flew…

Until the Evening (Leviticus 15)

            “…and be unclean until the evening.” I have worked with children in summer camps for many years, and I have seen my share of unclean boys (and girls).  Sometimes the mothers would get hysterical to see so much dirt on their children.  There was dirt on their knees, hands,…
