And it came to stay

"Which reminds me: A favorite young minister at my (progressive) church several years ago in a sermon discussing stamina in the face of long-term crisis pointed out the ancient take on such matters.

He reminded us that, "Several times in the Bible, stories begin with the words, 'And it came to pass . . . ' Always it says, 'And it came to pass, this' . . . 'And it came to pass that . . . '"

"Nowhere does it ever say, 'And it came to stay!' ""
