  • We have the peculiar spectacle of a nation which, to a limited extent, practices Christianity without actively believing in Christianity. We are asked to turn to the Church for our enlightenment, but when we do this we find that the voice of the Church is not inspired. The voice of the Church today is the echo of our own voices. And the result of this experience, already manifest, is disillusionment.... The way out is the sound of a voice, not our voice, but the voice coming from somewhere not ourselves, in the existence of which we cannot disbelieve. It is the task of the Pastors to hear this voice, cause us to hear it, and to tell us what it says. If they cannot hear it, or if they fail to tell us what it says, we laymen are totally lost. Without it we are no more capable of saving the world than we are capable of creating it in the first place.

  • What I've always appreciated about this church is that the pastors are able to give us a sense of the historical perspective of the scripture for the week.

Lets assume that the external divinity knew this world which would be independent of mans ephemeral existence. Then why does this world disappear with the man Because it is his world. The world of the dinosaurs existed when there were not people, we have relics of that time.
