It's one of the most amazing animals in the Bible! Doves are mentioned in many places in Scripture. But for today... the first place. That's Genesis 8 when Noah (yeah, of the ark and flood fame) sent one out to find dry land.
Here Noah is getting ready to let the dove fly from the ark!

More about doves next week!
