Glass houses is from a famous idiom, “people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
We’ll be ignoring the fact that, yes, throwing a stone at a glass house does sound deliciously thrilling, but I do not promote vandalism.
Imagine a place where any creature, big or small, could look at you and see all of you; your past, your mistakes, your struggles, your secrets, and your lies. And a place where you could see into everyone else’s dark place.
At church, our pastor did something so bluntly intelligent that I can’t believe I was shocked. He named the date. “Today is October 5th, 2014. Everyone think back to last year, October 5th, 2013. If you’ve had a problem since then, I want you to raise your hand.”
It was stupid of me to look around and be surprised that every church member in attendance had a hand in the air. But this is the way we are.
