Such as Could it happen? The hotel where half the people were to stay - damaged, closed. Such as Should people come?

Watch out what you ask for. When preachers start asking people to give feedback on sermons, it can get kind of rough and pretty holy.

Goats and Sheep

The Rev. Martha Sterne (TEC)

How good do you think you are at separating the goats from the sheep? The aggressors from the aggrieved? The perps from the victims? Here's a weird little memory on a country road in East Tennessee.
