“Religion is about having the right answers, and some of their answers are right… but I am about the process that takes you to the living answer… it will change you from the inside. There are a lot of smart people who are able to say a lot of right things from their brain because they have been told what the right answers are, but they don’t know Me at all.”
― William P. Young “The Shack”
I’m hardly a Bible expert: I remember as many verses as I’ve forgotten. I don’t worship as formally as I did when I was a girl and there are times I feel guilty about it.
But I do know this: I know Him and He knows me.
He’s with me on my walks.
I feel His nudge to pay attention to nagging thoughts or a blossoming ideas.
I see Him in my boys and grandchildren; laughing, talking and enjoying being together.
I feel Him around me, comforting me, hearing me, settling me.
So when some of the talking heads start spouting off their views on religion and reproduction and rapture? I wonder if they’ve ever even met.
