Those who never rebelled against God or at some point in their lives shaken their fists in the face of heaven, have never encountered God at all.

We cannot bear to regard ourselves simply as playthings of blind chance; we cannot admit to feeling ourselves abandoned.

If a man would follow, today, the teachings of the Old Testament, he would be a criminal.  If he would follow the teachings of the new, he would be insane.

Science is not only compatible with spirituality; it is a profound source of spirituality.  When we recognize our place in an immensity of light‐years and in the passage of ages, when we grasp the intricacy, beauty, and subtlety of life, then that soaring feeling, that sense of elation and humility combined, is surely spiritual.  So are our emotions in the presence of great art or music or literature, or acts of exemplary selfless courage such as those of Mohandas Gandhi or Martin Luther King, Jr.  The notion that science and spirituality are somehow mutually exclusive does a disservice to both.

Tomorrow will be the first Christmas in over a decade in which we didn’t host dinner for the (extended) family.  Our oldest daughter recently moved into a more spacious apartment, and she will be hosting!!  Yeah!!  Since I will be driving there and back, I won’t be drinking, but I also won’t be getting up at 6am to get the turkey in the oven.  (LoL)  Life is full of trade-offs…
Anyway, we are looking forward to a nice, relaxing meal with lots of family and natter (and maybe a little football on the telly).
Merry Christmas to all!!  Be safe!  And, if you are so inclined, say a prayer of thanks for those in harm’s way (and their families) who keep us safe.
