Monday Minute 2-5-18

Lent is coming. Here's something to think about...

 A retreat leader held up a drinking glass and asked a group of retreat participants, "Tell me," he said, "how can I get the air out of this glass that I have in my hand?"

 One person said, "Turn the glass over." Nope, there would still be air in the glass. “Break the glass,” another said. The retreat leader replied that would be cheating. A suggestion came from the back of the room, "Seal the glass with a lid and then suck the air out with a pump." But the retreat leader noted that would create a vacuum and shatter the glass.

What do you think? Tune in next week for the answer, and a suggestion for Lent…
