I’ll believe it when I see it


“I’ll believe it when I see it!” They were my words the last time someone told me we were going to have a hot, sunny weekend!  There are some things that we find hard to believe without seeing the evidence.  Most weeks there is a new scientific “discovery” reported in the papers and we feel we are closer to understanding everything there is. But actually, the more scientists discover, the more they realise still eludes us.  We still have no idea what most of the universe is made of, we don’t know how it started and we don’t understand why it seems to be so finely tuned as to allow for our existence. The nature of time eludes us and ageing is still a puzzle. We don’t understand the human brain – how can a mass of nerve cells produce a symphony, or appreciate the beauty of a sunset?  So where does this leave us?  Acknowledging our lack of understanding is the foundation of faith. In fact, just because the universe is so incomprehensible, we are inspired to believe in something bigger.  Albert Einstein said “That deep emotional conviction of the presence of a superior reasoning power, which is revealed in the incomprehensible universe, forms my idea of God.”  So what if there really is a God?  What is He like and can I know Him? Does it matter anyway?  If you want to find out – come to a local Church on Sunday morning. Doubters welcome!
