Drop your stone

This is a close up of quarterback Steve McNair.http://cdn.pis.picapp.com/IamProd/PicAppPIS/JavaScript/PisV4.jsThe following quote is from Bishop Joseph W. Walker III of Mt. Zion Baptist Church, where a memorial service was held for Steve McNair:

“People around this world and even here now, have a tension in their spirit. What is the response of the church in a moment like this?

“Oh, I know that is the big elephant in the room. What says the church in a moment like this?

“People want to know. I stand between two places as priest and prophet — as priest to this family and ministering to them, and yet prophet to speak to the nation of what thus sayeth God.

“There was a woman one day caught in adultery, and the religious people brought her to Jesus. And they said to Jesus, the law says she should be stoned. Jesus knelt down and drew in the sand. He looked up and said, ‘Ye without sin, cast the first stone.’

“They began to drop their stones, from the youngest to the oldest. And I have come to declare from the youngest to the oldest in America and over this world, it’s time to have a stone-dropping service.

“Drop your stone.”

Rest in peace, Steve McNair.
