Daily Rundown (January 6th)

“God develops the fruit of the Spirit in your life by allowing you to experience circumstances in which you’re tempted to express the exact opposite quality. Character development always involves a choice, and temptation provides that opportunity.” ~ Rick Warren

Daily Rundown (January 2nd)

The risen life of Jesus is the nourishment and strengthening and blessing and life of a Christian. Our daily experience ought to be that there comes, wavelet by wavelet, that silent, gentle, and yet omnipotent influx into our empty hearts, this very life of Christ Himself. – Alexander MacLaren

Science Plays Catch-up

In his book, “God and the Astronomers,” Robert Jastrow wrote,

“For the scientist who has lived by faith in the power of reason, the story ends like a bad dream. He has scaled the mountains of ignorance; he is about to conquer the highest peak; as he pulls himself over the final rock, he is greeted by a band of theologians who have been sitting there for centuries.”

When I read this article it made me think of Jastrow’s book. Science is just now catching up with the theologian and figuring out that there is life after death!

The Independent publishes an interesting article about Life After Death.
