ICON

If an icon is a window into the divine, it’s helpful to know the difference between the various types. The word “icon” (from the Greek eikon meaning holy image) has lost much of its meaning over the years. The Rev. Al  was quoted yesterday as saying, “Icon was only a fraction of what he [Michael Jackson] was.” I guess the same could be said of Jesus. Though, presumably, a much larger fraction.
