“That each new indignity defeats only the body.”

Donald Newbury knew that the indignity of execution could only defeat the body. For Newbury, the soul is always free for those who allow it to be. No matter the indignity of your circumstance, have you unchained your soul?

I invite you to pray the last words of Donald Newbury:

“That each new indignity defeats only the body.”

Amen.
