Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I wonder what would have happened if I had called from the pulpit, "Get behind me Satan!"? Dang - another one to add to my "should'a list".

This made me smile, but also made me think about the challenge of "All Welcome".

Yes. There was something for everyone to learn (including the devil!) from this incident, I think. And we do need to keep our sense of humor!

Awesome incident. Glad the ushers did the right thing and let him in.
