The image that comes to my mind is laying the burden on an altar and walking away. You've given me more to think about.

Thanks for reminding me about the Phoebe Palmer image of laying burdens down on an altar. I can't believe I forgot about it, it's such a good one! The image I come up with is usually the wooden altars that I've seen in countless UM churches, but set on white marble steps and surrounded by white walls, which is definitely not what any of the UMCs I know look like.
