Some closing remarks from Michael's Sermon:
”To top it off, we're all poor, like the widow. Maybe not in terms of wealth, but in
terms of our selfish thinking and our fears of all kinds of things. All of us are poor,
like the widow that Jesus admired. As I have said before, all of this--belonging to
God wholly --is not a tall order. It's impossible--for us. But all things are possible
Have a Blessed week,
Carpe every Diem,
Rufus and Sandy
