Friendship with Christ
A person who approaches Christ
with flattery makes no impression.
One who pretends to moral virtue
is seen for what he is.
A person who takes pride in religious
observance is not to be respected.
One who demands friendship
is gently spurned.
Friendship with Christ cannot
be claimed, but only received.
It is not a right, but a priviledge.
Open your heart to Christ,
and he will enter.
Come to him on your knees,
and he will raise you up.
—ancient saying from Robert van De Weyer's book
Burning of the Greens
We'll get the Low Country Boil cooking and the oysters steaming about 6 p.m. as the bonfire gets underway for our annual burning of the greens. It's a fun party. We hope to see you there.
