Pastor Nancy Butler at home in her Marlborough bedroom March 7. Above her is a passage from the bible. “It’s from the book of Hebrews," she said. "And the early Christians were being persecuted, and they were quitting the church because it was so difficult." The whole book of Hebrews was written to bolster suffering people, she explained. "That verse from Hebrews, that kind of gives me a kick in the pants when I need it.” On the wall, right, are the names of those who inspire her.
