Lenten Reading Day 1--Truth-Telling
From my Lenten reading today by Barbara Brown Taylor: "I remember being at a retreat once where the leader asked us to think of someone who represented Christ in our lives. When it came time to share our answers, one woman stood up and said, "I had to think hard about that one. I kept thinking. Who is it who told me the truth about myself so clearly that I wanted to kill him for it?"
