    Poorna Diaz, Reston, Virginia: “But don’t take any of this for granted. It was only yesterday that you outsiders to God’s ways had no idea of any of this, didn’t know the first thing about the way God works, hadn’t the faintest idea of Christ.

Now because of Christ—dying that death, shedding that blood—you who were once out of it altogether are in on everything.” Ephesians 2.11-13 (MSG)
