Integrity

      By Rev. Julian Duckworth

Integrity means to be sincere in everything. It is probably best seen as an ideal for us to strive towards, because even angels acknowledge that they are imperfect and they continue to take part in self-examination and to repent of their evils. Yet, to be angelic implies the wish to live in integrity and with this wish, to do the work involved.
