Don't forget about 'the other one'

Editor’s Note: Local pastors partner with us to bring a message of hope and comfort to readers twice a week. Look for it on Sundays and Wednesdays. We cannot cross a bridge that is broken. We may cross bridges that are dangerously deteriorated and threatening to fall. We can restore the damaged bridge for future use. We can build a new bridge. Occasionally, we even burn the bridge behind us. Bridges are viewed as “ours,” and we post “No trespassing” signs as a warning to the other ones who might need to cross our bridge.
