"Be ye ... wise as serpents, and harmless as doves"*

From the January 8, 1996 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


The wily serpent, finding that his skin is now an outgrown, worn-out sheath, simply shrugs it off and moves on, free in the new one already right there underneath. And I'm beginning to realize how unwise it is to cling to yesterday's already outdated ways of neutralizing evil's claims, as if a formula one continually resorts to.
