When I am in a retreat setting, at a camp and conference, in nature, traveling in the developing world I instinctively read in Mark’s Gospel. It’s elemental, earthy, direct, powerful in its simplicity. That’s how it was just now as I read and drank my coffee … and accidentally splashed it all over chapter 3. After mopping it up I look at the now permanent stain. “What is going to be highlighted in coffee color from here on?” And it is:

“A house divided cannot stand.”
