Do you live like you are 16 or 60? After seven weeks wearing a monstrous fracture boot, Ernest replaced 2019 plans to skydive with baking. His lesson from the fall is to play it safe. How have you reacted to injuries? In today's Gospel story, Jesus meets an adulterer (John 8:1-11). One lesson is to repent and never sin again. Another is the shame of criticizing others, “Let him that is without sin cast the first stone.” Everyday we choose between 16 and 60, and that’s why William Blake's "The Woman Taken in Adultery" is our art of the week.
