In our feeble attempts to process the events of December 14th, Jeff penned these words. Though he calls his writings his "ramblings" his heart is expressed in these words. He graciously agreed to let me post them on our blog. _____________________________________________________________
Where is God in the darkness?Where
is God in the pain and sorrow? Some would say that God is not there, or that God was never there.
cannot prove the existence of God.I
cannot say look here or there, that is God.I cannot discount an individual’s experience.All that I can speak to is my own
experiences.The event in Newtown, CT
shakes me to the core.I too have the
question of why.My heart is
grieving.I never met any of these
children or teachers, but I was in pain that day.I care because I am a human being, not
because I believe in a God.I care because
it is painful for all of us.My feelings
are in distress regardless of the existence of any kind of deity.I feel because I am a human being, and that
day 28 of my fellow human beings died, and that hurts.Days like these cause me to question why this
could be allowed to happen.I have no
answer.I do not know.All I know is that it hurts me so much.
