The Aramaic word that is commonly translated as "enemy" in the Bible can mean "someone with whom we are out of step." One woman who had told me before the program that she had no enemies came to me afterward and said, "when I said I had no enemies, I was thinking of people who were out to get me, to do me bodily harm. I really don't have any of those in my life. But people with whom I am out of step! Oh, my! I have plenty of those."
