Today I find it still does and maybe more so now than ever before, especially since this world seems to be getting crazier as time goes by. People everywhere are looking for hope in these troubled days and we, as individuals and as a nation, all need hope!

Sword set in a stone

The legend of King Arthur and his knights have captivated our imaginations for years. I've enjoyed several retellings and movies over the years.
