    That’s a prayer we could all use every day. The one about the old people walking (or driving) annoyingly slow is the one I most need to reflect on. I know I’m a jackass, but I hate things and people that physically get in my way, and often, they are old ladies who probably have more life wisdom in one little pinky than those of us who are younger and “more important” have in our entire bodies. I would love to see a post on our indifference to the elderly sometime.

    I liked the plea of Rev. John Wester of the Salt Lake Diocese to the St. George C of C for all of us engaged in life and issues over those who are a couple cards short of a full documentation deck. He said:
    1. Remember all people are God’s children.
    2. Show hospitality to family, friends and strangers and treat everyone with dignity.
    3. Listen to people and realize each person has a story peculiar to his or her life.
    4. Ensure churches are involved in the immigration debate because they are global in scope and vision.
    5. Be generous and remember that to whom much is given, much is demanded.

    WP, also don’t forget the words of Peter Parker’s late Uncle Ben:

    1. “With great power comes great responsibility.”

    Really makes you think….. :o)
