    CARLISLE UNITED METHODIST

  • Years ago, a pastor friend of mine did a series of seminary talks titled “Porcupines in the Storm.”
    He spoke about how we, meaning we Christians, are like porcupines — prickly and sometimes dangerous, especially to each other.
    Porcupines actually have soft hair, but on their backs, sides and tails the soft hair is mixed with sharp quills; Africa’s crested porcupines have quills nearly a foot long.
    As porcupines go about their day, their quills lie flat — until the animal feels threatened. Then the quills leap to attention.
