Train up a child in the way he should go:
and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Proverbs 22:6

“growing up happens when you start having things you look back on and wish you could change”.

City of Ashes by Cassandra Clare

King Solomon, known for his wisdom, said “the Lord said to my father David, “Your son, whom I will set on your throne in your place, shall build the house for my name”, and he built the Temple in Jerusalem.

Jesus, son of David, said “Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up”, meaning the Temple of his body.

Where have we built our temple for God?

Although “there is nothing outside a person that by going in can defile” there are some things that can give you a very bad stomach ache.

“Faith perishes if it is walled in or confined. If it is anywhere, it must be everywhere, like God himself: if God is in your life, he is in all things, for he is God.

You must be able to spread the area of your recognition for him and the basis of your conviction about him, as widely as your thought will range.”

Austen Farrer quoted by Richard Harries in his book “God outside the Box, why spiritual people object to Christianity.”

I still believe, in spite of everything,
that people are truly good at heart.
