A Cross & Nails Are Not Always Necessary

A cross and nails are not always necessary. There are a thousand ways to kill him, some of them as obvious as choosing where you will stand when the showdown between the weak and the strong comes along, others of them as subtle as keeping your mouth shut when someone asks you if you know him.

– Barbara Brown Taylor, “Truth to Tell,” from The Perfect Mirror; reprinted in The Christian Century, March 18-25, 1998.
