He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

Best if you have a family to share with. Otherwise you either need to cut it up and dry in the oven or it goes moldy very fast.

I have no idea what this means.
In my neck of the woods a "______   shoot" means a shooting match (usually clay birds) in which the prizes are the item listed at the blank.

I've never heard of a "steak shoot" per se but I have heard of "turkey shoots" and "basket shoots".

So this a shooting match where steaks are awarded as prizes.

I cut mine up and freeze it.  If you take a piece and put it in the fridge, it will thaw sufficiently overnight.  A few seconds in the microwave, and it's perfect.

This was in the Greek Orthodox Church of the Cana Wedding in Galilee.  I was wondering if someone can tell me what are those hanging on the wall with the "three fingers".
