Some people will bicker for years about the objects that they see in their churches - how they are upset a cross was moved away from the altar or the pretty wall-hangings that came over on the Mayflower with all that symbolism in them were removed - while other people in the Church will see what is actually going on within themselves & the congregation - that materialism & this drive to "keep up appearances" have taken the place of humanity & genuine love in their own hearts???
