Fun Facts From Church History

ughNothing in the entire history of the Church has ever happened on 4 September.  Nothing.

September 4- a greater debacle than even that book.  Or group.  Or conference.  Barely.  Ok, no, you’re right.  All that rubbish is a greater debacle.  4 September is just the second greatest debacle.
