HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL-Nov. 26, 2016-I WAS IN PRISON AND YOU VISITED ME
Compiled by Holy Heretic Connie Foster
Show me a prison, show me a jail
Show me a pris’ner who
face has grown pale
And I’ll show you a young man
with many reasons why
There but by fortune go you and I.
— Phil Ochs
When “There but by Fortune” was written this young folk singer was struggling with depression, which later resulted in his suicide. There are so many of all ages crying out like this young artist did for acceptance and approval. Why do we judge and why do we not reach out to our brothers and sisters just as someone reached out to us? We have all been in that dark spot, some more than others. In this life and on this earth, in the end, all we can do is be there for each other. “There but for fortune go you and I.”
Today’s Action: Reach out today to someone you know is struggling. The holidays for some are the hardest to get through for different reasons. This may be the season we could help that lost soul find their way.
Today’s Sharing: We would love to hear how you have taken that action and helped someone in their darkest hour and how you have been helped. Share your stories on our Facebook page at facebook.com/holyhereticzine
