Why, Church? (Are you So Self-Obsessed?)
Rev. Thomas G. James
March 02, 2022
As the season of Lent begins, we consider the question: "Why, Church?" The dual punctuations, the question mark with the comma, invites a very different answer than the question "Why Church?" The comma adds an extra pause and an invitation to reflection. Like Lent, the comma invites us to spend a bit of time looking at the motive, not just the action.
