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 ...

Now and then, an interpretation hinges on something as simple as punctuation. Consider the Advent proclamation of John:
The voice of one crying out in the desert, Prepare the way of the Lord
versus
The voice of one crying out, In the desert, prepare the way of the Lord.

So too the quotation used as an emblem for prayers for Christian unity:
That they may be one, that the world may believe
versus
That they may be one; that the world may believe.

Is this cause and effect, or an amplification of the same statement? Makes a difference, doesn't it?
