Quote of the Week

"Steve Hawking claims we don't need God, because the universe can be explained entirely by the laws of physics. But apart from God, how can we make sense of the existence and properties of the laws of physics? How could such laws exist apart from a law-giver, and how could we know that they apply everywhere at all times? The Christian world view can make sense of these things.

God upholds the universe in a logical and consistent way that can be at least partly understood by the human mind. Thus, the Christian world view provides a rational foundation for science. However, Hawking is left in the embarrassing position of having no logical justification for the methods and procedures of science. He must borrow concepts (like universal laws of nature) from the Christian world view while simultaneously denying the Christian God." - Dr. Jason Lisle, Astrophysicist

And your photograph illustrates one of the things that's hard to explain: our appreciation for beauty.

Beautiful sunset, takes my breath away...
I think when we look at nature and some beuatiful natural wonders, it is hard not to at least feel a touch of spirituality.
I think when I am faced with miracles of life is it hard not to believe in anything divine.
Hope all is well with you,
xoxo

What a stunning photograph! It's funny, I can't wrap my head around the concept of the universe, but have no problem taking the leap of faith necessary to devote my self to God.
