Martha-Lynn Corner and her family attend St. Thomas Episcopal Church in Richmond, Virginia.
Our family was "that family" in church. I'm sure most of us are familiar with what I mean by "that family." It could be the one that always comes in late, or the one with kids making weird clicking noises during times of silence, or kids who decide the aisle is ripe for a repeat performance of Usain Bolt's gold-medal effort in the 200m.
The priest faces inward, toward liturgy and the sacraments. The layperson faces outward, toward everything else—everything.
