The Gravity Of Wonder

You can’t deny gravity. Well, it’s extremely hard to anyways, and even if you are able to escape its grip, it isn’t at all sustainable for any real length of time and it's not long before you come crashing back to the reality that gravity is tethered to you for life.

I remember when my wife & I went to the theatre to see the movie 'Gravity' for the first time. Sitting practically right in front of the screen, with our 3D glasses on, the grand infinity of space opened up to us during the beginning frames. I always love the beauty in these scenes as they bring a sense of...

Inceptions: Campfires, Scouter Bob, & The Art Of Storytelling

The flames flicker as I gaze into the embers of my memories and imagination...

Stepping out of the lights and noise of the others still in the cabin, I took a deep breath of the clean crisp Kananaskis air while looking upwards at the clear starry night sky above me. It was beautiful and I felt an overwhelming sense of freeness just being there, as though the world had become so much bigger. This was home away from home for me and time was never ending.

I think it is important to note here that by saying each agent complements the others, they find diversity in inauguration and yet equity between each other. The Father’s office in identity may be in difference to the Son and the Spirit through expression, and yet the two are found as equals and the same over the course of all time. To some appearance this might...

Just More Wondering...

Came across a quote in my latest read that I've been finding myself in wonder about...

"As civilization advances, the sense of wonder almost necessarily declines. Such decline is an alarming symptom of our state of mind.

What we lack is not a will to believe, but a will to wonder."
