"The universe is not only stranger than we imagine, it is stranger than we can imagine."
- Sir Arthur Eddington
IN JIM'S WORDS...
When I retired to the woods of South Carolina I wanted to experience a passion similar to those who built Stonehenge - strong enough to inspire me to move mega-ton boulders halfway across England. That is to say, I retired with an agenda. “Okay God, it’s you and me. No structures No restrictions. No theology. No holds barred. Twenty-four hours a day. You are my only passion. You say you like a challenge? Bring it on!” Like Jacob of old who wrestled with God, I had one prayer on my lips: “I will not let you go until you bless me!”
Imagine my surprise when, in a totally unexpected way, God answered and did just that!
QUOTE OF THE WEEK
"For the present, as far as we know, gravity effectually exists only within our Cosmos. But conceptually it is independent of material existence and therefore eternal. Now substitute words such as “love,” “compassion,” “empathy,” “trust,” or “morality” for the word “gravity.” All those words, just like gravity, describe things that are real enough to powerfully affect our lives even though they cannot be dissected and observed under a microscope. They, too, are eternal."
