Small Thoughts... TO CHEW ON!
By Paul Ravenhill
Man has used the philosopher's statement for generations to substantiate his existence.
I started wondering the other day - where would it leave us in the church if we applied the same reasoning? Would we have to say, "I don't think, therefore I am nothing?"
Certainly a great part of the emptiness of mental asylums consists in the fact that the bodies of the inmates are uninhabited as far as effective thought process is concerned. Bodies are there but "being" is sadly absent.
What about in the average church?
What about ourselves?
Do we see beyond that which the sun illuminates?
We used to sing an old hymn 'Lighten our Darkness and lend us Thine aid.' - I believe its still a valid supplication.
