Today's word is evil.

This is the crucifix at a nearby retreat center in Charleston.  When I thought of the word evil, many images came to mind.  I settled on the act of crucifixion. 

What has always struck me about this particular crucifix, though, are the shadows.  Can you see them?  With some study, you might be able to imagine that they are angels, holding up Christ. 

In the presence of evil, Christ was not alone.  In the presence of evil, we are not alone.
