Rev. Scott discusses the significance of “40” — be it days, night or years — and more specifically the 40 days Jesus spent in the wilderness with the beasts and the angels before returning to face his fate. (Now you do realize those 40 days are what we now celebrate as the reflective season of Lent.) But then, like a skilled driver, Rev. Scott shares a personal story of angels and wild beasts that you simply cannot turn away from. | Rev. Edward A. Scott, Allen Chapel A.M.E. Church, Staunton, VA
