Quotes Debra Lusanne: You say you believe in God. You say you don't believe in the Church. the church believes in God. Who's right?
Juvenal aka Charlie Lawson: It's not about being right. The Pharisees, they wanted to be right, and they were up to a point. It's about BEING. Being kind. Being patient. Being Loving. Forgiving. Not judging. Drawing out the best in the other. Seeing the presence of Christ in everything and everyone.
