Non nobis domine non nobis sed nomini tuo da gloriam.

How’s that for a motto, and some words to live by!

For those whose Latin is as weak as mine, the English words are: “Not to us Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory.”  And I consider it most appropriate.

It seems to me that almost all of the problems and issues people have with religion, religious bodies and churches would disappear if more people paid attention to these words – and followed them.

After all, it is not to our glory that we do this.

Blessed Be!

Bishop Lippitt
