Since June 26, 2015, and the redefinition of marriage, your religious exercise arena has, no doubt, begun to feel more enclosed; a bit like Alice in Wonderland–too tall for a room full of locked doors.
You’ve got wounds, some closed, some still raw and weeping, wounds that time simply can’t heal, wounds that will only be healed in the resurrection.
