ANGELS ON THE HEAD OF A PIN

While wolves tear into a flock of helpless sheep, their three shepherds argue over how many angels can sit on the head of a pin.

When I was a pastor of local churches, I always took seriously the several severe warnings to shepherds in the bible... like in Jeremiah and Ezekiel... two prophets who cared more for the people than their own leaders did.

I believe theology is a good science. But we shouldn't let it get in the way of basic decent humanity.

I really appreciate it when we help one another, support one another, encourage one another, uplift one another, protect one another. 

It's really beautiful to see that happening here... yes... online. It really means something!

This is what love does.

And I thank you.
