By the Bathroom Theolgian. A brief word about the Notre Dame fire today in Paris. Nothing is forever. One commentator I heard on the evening news stated that this is symbolic of the decline of Christianity in Europe and indeed throughout the western world. Many of the magnificent cathedrals in Europe have become nothing more than museums rather than houses of worship. Christianity is currently the most persecuted religion in the world. Our Christian faith is a gift that must be nourished, preserved, and handed down to the next generation. We are failing in that missive. This should be a wake-up call to all Christians. Notwithstanding any of denominational differences we might have, we are One Bread One Body.
