It Happens Slowly

It happens slowly, the way it becomes about us and not about God.

It happens when we change our email signatures to include that we are pastors, when we sit a little straighter in our chairs when we talk about the Bible, when we look at people like they should defer to us because we are the ones who know.
We are two people and those other people — we are us and they are them. It happens before you realize it has happened. It happens the moment you believe that your spirituality has surpassed that of someone else, that you can be their Holy Spirit.
