In reference to Acts 2:15-21, quoted in a comment prededing this one: Interesting…… As I read it it says “not drunk”… like you think they are…. Touched by God…. yes. Drunk… No. Isn’t it a shame that something that is so Holy, so Awesome, so Righteous, to ACTUALLY be in the Presence of God and [...]

Most recently, lyrics from a song in a  contemporary stage play, but originating in a 13th century hymnal, penned by Richard of Chichester (1197-1253), the following lyrics have become a personal prayer which express my deepest desires: Day by day, dear Lord of thee three things I pray: to see thee more clearly, love thee [...]

Metaphysics

October 14, 2009

The nature of Reality:  Does God exist?;  What is His nature?;  Is it possible to develop a relationship, some type of contact, with Him?  What might the nature of that contact be?   Much of what will be written at this site presumes the relevance of those questions.  It assumes their importance, and that conclusions are [...]

New Beginnings

October 13, 2009

I’ve been waiting, waiting for just the right inspiration, and it hasn’t yet come.  All these years of waiting, and I’m still waiting.  So I will begin regardless, not sure of what will come, but we will see.  There are things to say, but I’m not quite sure how to say them.  Maybe I should [...]
