We’ve Come a Long Way, Baby
That’s an acolyte. With her hair in a bun. HER hair.
Do you remember a time when that was totally unheard of? To have a woman at the alter? Holy Moly!
But isn’t she beautiful? How did we ever think that keeping such a beautiful child from participating in such a beautiful way in such a beautiful service to God was ever wrong?
We’ve come a long way, baby. A long way to a new understanding of who we are, of who God is, and who we are to become.
And we have a long, long way to go.
What reason weaves, by passion is undone. -Alexander Pope

What say you?
