"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
"Acceptance of a future not yet understood is called, by religious folks, faith. The writer of the biblical book of Hebrews called it the “assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” It’s what allows us to get up in the morning, having at least some trust that today, although still an unknown quantity, will be worth living. Without some kind of faith, we all would probably perish. Sad to say, some people do. After all, out there at the edge of faith lies the boundary of despair. Many folks who cross that boundary, die, sometimes without hope.
But faith, like every other living thing, can be fed and exercised, making it grow stronger, pushing the boundary further out ahead."
