“Man of the Cloth…

…without the cloth. “ This idea, this image, from the sci-fi film “Contact”, Matthew McConaughey’s character explains himself this way…

…and it resonated with me then, and it resonates with me now.

Most of my life I’ve felt a sense of personal relationship with God, the Devine, somehow, someway. But I’m no priest, no minister, no mystic…I’m just a guy. I’m just a guy going though life. I’m a dad trying to do right by my kids.

I’m just a guy trying to do right I’m the world, with those around me. I’m just a guy feeling God is right here with us, right now.

I read scripture and sometimes it just resonates, it seems to transcend the hundreds, maybe thousands of years since it was written. Like this, “… and he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to him all are alive.”

I don’t need a special cloth to understand some of it, maybe a lot of it. Let it speak to you. You might be the same.
