Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

Worth noting:
Three times, the gospel tells us, the Father spoke aloud to the Son in the hearing of others. At his baptism; at his transfiguration; when he began to preach to Gentiles. There were different people around each time: at the Jordan, John, the last of the prophets; on Tabor, Peter, James, and John, the princes of the church; and in Jerusalem, Andrew – the first apostle called – and Philip, the apostle with the Greek name.

Three announcements, of three different stages in the mission of salvation, mediated by three different classes of individuals. The last message, for the whole world to hear, was the least clear, and the one argued about.
