Gracious words are like a honeycomb,
sweetness to the soul and health to the body.
— Proverbs 16:24

The Bee Hive is a place where we reflect on Christianity, the Christian life, the church, and our culture with thoughtful and "gracious words" that are sweet "to the soul" and bring "health to the body" (Proverbs 16:24).
