The needle: strong, unbending, consistent, straight.
Pierces: sharper than a two edged sword.
The needle is Christ, the Word of God, the Cross.
knitting together: heaven and earth, spirit and flesh, divinity and humanity.
Why did we ever think we could get to heaven on our own, that it was about what we had or did, that it was about our goodness?
Forget the Camel; take the needle.
