Good, Better, Best Friday

It’s Good Friday, one of the most sacred days in the Christian calendar. We use this day to remember that, a long time ago, someone was born who was not only fully human, but also fully divine. The Creator of the universe visited one of the planets to bring a message of hope, forgiveness and salvation to all who dwell here.

I wonder how many other planets have received this same type of visit? How many people have shared their “humanity” with divinity and in what way did they save the inhabitants of that world?

Agnostics like to believe that God created us, then went out for coffee and never came back. Atheists like to believe that we just sort of ambled onto the scene for no particular reason and the universe sort of always was around, or maybe slowly came into existence from nowhere.

Neither one makes much sense. If I were to create conscious beings, I’d keep a loving eye on them, much as parents do with their children. And, certainly, you can’t have a universe just come into being from nothing. We’re here because someone created us and, a long time ago, quietly walked among us showing how to get it right.

Everybody has a story.
Ann Celano threw out the first pitch at the local Triple-A franchise yesterday. She pitched straight, but the ball didn’t go very far at all. It should be mentioned that Ann used to watch Babe Ruth in 1923 and she is 98 years old.

As our local school board scrambles to make a calendar by offending everyone in order to offend no one, I wish I could get them to read your blog today.
