Within the heart there are many rooms just as in a home. The living room, dining room, playroom, kitchen and even the bathroom. These are rooms full of life, light and relationships, but then there are the other rooms: the attic and basement. These can be dark, dungy and even downright creepy. They are disorganized, unruly and confusing.
The mosaic pictured above
stands in Veria, in modern-day
Macedonia. Its depiction is of
the Apostle Paul preaching in
the synagogue of Jews in that
city; then called Berea. It was
one of the first cities where Paul
had proclaimed Christ, about 55 AD.

I couldn’t imagine hearing a rooster crow every morning reminding me that I’m a scumbag, worm or slug, the very thing that I want to forget.
