I once owned a business importing a range of products from Bali. One day an elderly man popped in to the shop and struck up a conversation with me that ultimately lead to religion. Since I embrace the Buddhism philosophy of Life I was not particularly interested in discussing religion and was somewhat put off by his attitude and politely excused myself.

However, much to my indifference the man persisted in coming back and it was only when he mentioned the Parables of the Kingdom of God (the Parables) that he aroused my curiosity. Our discussions ensued for many months as we discussed and at times passionately debated the meaning of the Parables.

Don, I am eternally thankful and grateful that you persisted and introduced me to the Parables.

For those who are interested in exploring the Parables log on to the link:
