A Passage that Won't be Much Quoted by Fundamentalists:

From this morning's Office of Readings comes this verse from the Second Letter of John,

Though I have much to write to you, I would rather not use paper and ink, but I hope to come to see you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete.

My original thought, which I still think as valid, is that you wouldn't hear anyone knocking on your door quoting this passage.

Strangely though later this morning, I remembered the passage and it spoke to me, not as something written by John but something that God is saying to us--that God longs to talk to us--"that our joy may be complete."
