Do you feel Godless?
I hear this word so often; ‘Godless’, spoken or implied and it makes me very sad because God is here with open arms in the presence of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit, waiting patiently. Though His transformative Love is beyond words and within reach, it is largely ignored.

I read the other day about the presence of God.
‘He is in those who are hungry and thirsty for our presence and our love, in those who ask us for help’.
I thought of the famous Vigeland statue in the Frogner Park in Oslo; humanity standing on humanity to get to the top men, women and children. The problems of our world are just that; egos driving people to achieve, get to the top and stay there. Make sure their voices are heard, their will obeyed.

Many Churches are good people saying and doing what they believe to be right. The problem is that they interpret teaching through the filter of their own prejudice, not through divine understanding, unconditional Love. Their love has conditions, the Love of the Trinity has none. What a tragedy that many who proclaim the ‘Good News’ put their own spin on it; you can’t be this and you can’t be that or you won’t be loved and heaven forbid, you can’t be gay!

Some other words I read the other day:
Science says that we need four basic elements to survive; 1 water, 2 air, 3 food, 4 light.
Look what the Bible tells us about Jesus:
1 I am the living water.
2 I am the breath of life.
3 I am the bread of life.
4 I am the light of the world.
Science was right, we need Jesus.

Of the many scientists who believed or believe in God, Ernest Walton 1903-1995 was a devout Methodist, who said science was a way of knowing more about God. He was winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics after he artificially split the atom and proved that E = mc2.

Don’t ask me what E = mc2 means, but if you want an informal, confidential chat I am always available. It’s never too late.
