Contrasts

Photo by Christopher Martin

" I have no longing for things great and fair,

Beauty and strength and of word or deed;

For all sweet things my soul has ceased to care;

Infinite pity -- that is all its need."

J.B.B. Nichols

That is haunting. Sheep and the goats...that's all I think about when I see that picture.

Me too; there are few things that Christ spoke about that are clearer than that passage. But as you know, the theme runs through every book of the Bible. I thank God that he created photography, because we need continual reminders in our culture, where we may live a lifetime and never see such a contrast.
