First Lesson

Stephen was the first Christian martyr, stoned to death by the Sanhedrin about a year after the murder of Jesus. The Sanhedrin were obviously rather annoyed at what he had to say. I suspect that they've reconvened in Jerusalem after all these centuries to stone a few more loudmouths to death.

Francis of Assisi was told, "Go, Francis, and repair my house, which as you see is falling into ruin". He was called insane by his peers. He loved songs. He didn't give a damn what the world thought of him. He detested money, discord and strife. He talked to anybody from any station. My kinda guy. It's a good thing half my name is taken from him.

First Lesson: Stephen Francis is named well, even if he has given up on what passes for 'The Church" these days.

Acts 7:43: "...you took up the tent of Moloch and the star of your god Remphan, the images that you made to worship."
