What A Saint
Logo for 77% Weekly

seems to me, dear God, that to not strike back when we have been
wounded unjustly by someone else takes considerable restraint. To not
even speak of that injustice to another is truly a sign of unusual
grace. To not even think at a later time of that wound so unfairly
inflicted, I believe is the mark of a true saint.

Maybe that’s
why there are so few of them these days. It is my thoughts, dear Lord,
not just my deeds, that rob me of sainthood. How often I diminish
myself by diminishing others in my private thoughts of them. I reduce
my own spiritual stature, inch by inch, by reducing others in my mind.
As others become smaller and smaller in my own thoughts of them I seem
to stand less tall myself. It seems the more I look down on others the
easier I make it for them to look down on me. It is not surprising to
me that no one has ever confused me of being a saint.



The 77% Weekly

The 77% Weekly: The Religion-Outside-The-Box Newsletter
helps people find and be with (the) God (of their understanding) 40 out of 52 weeks a year.


Why 77%?
Two reasons:
1) 40/52 = 0.76923. The newsletter is sent every Monday except the last of each month.
2) In school 77% was a passing grade and ROTB wants to remind you that life isn’t graded.

Religion-Outside-The-Box is a donation-supported,
non-denominational, internet-based, 501c3-tax exempt religious congregation.
