Wondering about ourselves

December 24, 2008

With the current tools of science we can see giant objects from the distant past that are hard to imagine. We can also see objects so small that they actually pass into and out of existence. The conditions necessary for us to live requre all sorts of special conditions that make our existence very tenuous … yet here we are, like ephemeral dust sprinkled on a pebble in the universe – self-conscious dust that wonders at the world, wonders if we have a purpose, wonders if we were created or if we are just a weird happenstance.

We cannot see all it’s dimensions, grasp all of its details or understand all of who we are. ¬†All we have is glimpses, touches and nuggets of wisdom. But those glimpses, touches and nuggets are enough to let us connect to the one who made us all.
