"So many that call themselves Christian have a small and distant view of God's kingdom, yet a large and ominous view of the world. That's exactly backwards." #thescatteredones

The Windshield.. "There is such a thing as darkness and light.. both physically and metaphysically. All drivers for any length of time have had this experience. While driving at night, or even on a gloomy day the windshield of your car seems perfectly suitable to the task. But, then comes the bright and sunny day to reveal how dirty the glass actually is.. a glaring revelation. There is a light that shines in and on us that hurts, then heals. In that light we see the dust, smudges and smears of our condition and are able to make the choices needed to be free of them. That light is our friend. But there is also a pseudo-light that says no, just forget about it, everything is fine and you're tempted to drive on into the night. Well, that 'light' is actually just another form of darkness. And.. it is not our friend. Your windshield is still dirty." #thescatteredones

"Direction. We live on this planet with a working concept of it ... North, South, East and West. We all know what they mean and use them to reference our movement. Two of these are destinations. Two of these are directions. What does that mean? Well, if you set on a path of North and don't stop, you will eventually find yourself going South. Likewise, if you move in the direction of South, at some point you'll pass south and be traveling North. North and South are fixed points. East and West are not that, they are directions. Travel East and you will always be traveling East (though you will eventually repeat yourself). Likewise, move West and you will always be moving West. We live with and are accustomed to these parameters even though we hardly think of their meaning. But if you were to leave this planet all of it means nothing. There is no North, South, East or West. In relation to this planet there is only back to it or away from it. Direction become something else relating to the larger universe. Most of us don't actually leave this planet or it's sphere of influence. We fly in planes. Some have left it's gravitational pull for a time and returned. A hand full have even broken ties with earth,circled or landed on the moon and returned to tell us all what it was like. Imagine all of this as a metaphor to life, death and beyond. We live within the directional parameters of this life and can imagine but have no experience of anything else. Some say they've seen a glimpse beyond it all and we rush to wonder and speculate. If only someone were to truly die, truly understand liife beyond it all and return to explain it to us. Now that would be someone to listen to."
