Worshipping in Ignorance

iheminw001p1

Our nada who art in nada, nada be thy name thy kingdom nada thy will be nada in nada as it is in nada. Give us this nada our daily nada and nada us our nada as we nada our nadas and nada us not into nada but deliver us from nada; pues nada. Hail nothing full of nothing, nothing is with thee.

Ernest Hemingway, from A Clean, Well-Lighted Place


Religion isn’t very satisfying, but people still try.  It’s sort of like sending email to a famous person – hoping they answer back.  How are you going to get noticed?

Yes religion is man reaching out to God, but in Jesus, God reached out to man.  The birth of Jesus was God setting heaven aside for a humble stable.  My prayer for you is that you will truly get to know the God who is reaching out to you through His son Jesus.

Stop trying so hard. You only need to open your heart.

Acts 17:22-23

So Paul stood in the midst of the Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I observe that you are very religious in all respects. “For while I was passing through and examining the objects of your worship, I also found an altar with this inscription, ‘TO AN UNKNOWN GOD.’ Therefore what you worship in ignorance, this I proclaim to you.
