I saw a sign in front of St. Ann Church, just outside the City of Syracuse -- "in the world but not of it," you might say, if you are not suburban-minded (as I am not).
The sign read:
I liked it. I like it.
Did the pastor give a Christmas homily on that?
It's a facile declaration.
But what would it mean?
Fewer physical gifts and more staring into eyes, more hugs and holding hands?
I talk a good game.
This would be harder than I first thought.
