We will all die. A day will come when we breathe our last breath. This can be horrifying: spiritually, physically, socially, and emotionally. Our culture has tried to deny death. Too many people die alone. But death can also be clarifying. Our purpose, people, and God's mercy come to light. Jesus experienced the horror and clarity of death. He died on the Cross for the sins of the world. His last breath teaches us the practice of "release."

Saul was breathing threats and murder against Christians. Little did he know, we would soon join them as one of their chief spokespeople. Jesus stopped him on the way to Damascus, called his name, stole his sight, and gave him a new mission. Saul, who became Paul, converted, received his commission, and the rest, as they say, is history. His story is an example of Jesus taking the most odious breath and refreshing it. He did it with Paul; he does it with us.
