This web log is a place to conduct a conversation on the elusive nature or features of listening to and following God’s will. That is, it is concerned with the “how and why” of seeing with Eyes of Faith. Besides the “how and why” it is also about the “what.” What does one see in the world through Eyes of Faith? This component of the weblog is, alas, likely to be the preponderant content for some time. Seeing with eyes of faith is ultimately about viewing the world as a creature of a personal God.
The New York Times published an article by Heather Timmons on a recent speech by Alan Greenspan to the Group of 7 ministers meeting in London. Entitled "Greenspan Points to Danger of Rising Budget Deficits," the article reminds us of our national failure to control our apetites. When I was a young boy in school, the goad that got me to exercise was "Move it, or lose it." Our out-of-control national spending could benefit from similar advice, "Prune it, or watch it die."
