  • Things I have learned in my lifetime

    By James Snyder

    Special to the Pioneer

  • The babbling people

    Genesis 11:1-9 is one of those sections within the Bible where many people believe they have it figured out. The story of the Tower of Babel is one where most, if not the majority of Christians, know something about. For them, this is where the different nationalities of people came from. This is where the different languages are derived. Well, you are right, but is there more to the story than that? You better believe there is!
