  1. There’s our old friend “Quickmere” again. Another cool font, but not as distinctive as another example posted recently.

  2. Church offices in Beirut! While the overall reach of the Gospel is increasing, some regions have LONG periods without any missionaries at all (see also: Soviet Union). I sometimes wonder what it will take to open the doors of the Middle East (again) to the missionaries.

  3. When Amy pointed out the Quickmere again, my crossword puzzle brain cell pointed out that “quick” is an archaic synonym for “living” and that “mere” is a word that can mean “water” — a broad shallow lake. So the Church’s registered telegraph code might very well have been picked for its double meaning: “Living Water.”
