JUDGE NOT, EVEN IN WORSHIP - This piece came from Dr. Paul Brand, veteran missionary surgeon: During my life as a missionary surgeon in India and now as a member of the tiny chapel on the grounds of the Carville leprosy hospital, I have seen my share of unlikely seekers after God.

And I must admit that most of my worship in the last thirty years has not taken place among people who have shared my tastes in music, speech, or even thought.

But over those years I have been profoundly -- and humbly -- impressed that I find God in the faces of my fellow worshipers by sharing with people who are shockingly different from each other and from me.
