From the Pastor’s Desk
Have you heard the one about the two salesmen? Well, looking to expand its business a shoe company sent a salesman to a remote part of the country. When he arrived, he was dismayed because everyone went around barefoot.
It is said that in some American prisons which still have a so-called “death row”, when a prisoner conducts his final walk to his execution the guard will shout, “dead man walking”. It tells others to get out of the way and show some sort of respect for a man about to leave this life. In New Testament times when a Roman official sentence someone to death he would shout out: “Put the cross on the man!”
