The Wild 70's

The Gospel reading on the 2nd Sunday of Lent is usually the story of Jesus' transfiguration. The priest at the MIT Chapel was talking during his homily about similarly receiving God's light in our lives. He went on to say:

We all need light to grow, so in addition to food and water and friendship we need to be in the light. Back in the 70's when we used to grow pot, we'd put it under a bright light...uhh...maybe that wasn't the best example...

At least he got everybody to pay attention to what he was talking about.
