Have you ever wondered how you could bless people at the “Ends of the Earth”? Parts of China’s Silk Road regions are further from the sea than anywhere else on earth.

Divorce show-down

I studied the very young husband, then the wife, looking for signs that they were listening to me. Would they still follow through on their divorce? “You must have only been married for a year or two. Give it another try.
