Let us not shake our head in condemnation of those who shouted crucify him, because we are them.

The more I light candles in a sanctuary, the better equipped I am to see and be His light in the dark places. The more I partake of the simple bread and cup elements in the pews, the better equipped I am to gratefully accept my daily bread, in whatever form it may take. The more I gather with brother and sisters of all ages, backgrounds and political beliefs, the better prepared I am for the Kingdom that is to come.
