Ephesians 2; John 3
We are God's Poetry We are God's Poetry We are God's Poetry
Desert Mother (4th century) Amma Theodora also said, “There was a monk, who, because of the great number of his temptations said, ‘I will go away from here.’ As he was putting on his sandals, he saw another man who was also putting on his sandals and this other monk said to him, ‘Is it on my account you are going away? Because I go before you wherever you are going.’”
