Readings for Today

If there is a challenge in the current age, it is the belief that what comes from sense knowledge is always the most believable. “Seeing is believing,” we say. Science, despite the ways in which it relies on conjecture, and testing of theories, and “groupthink”, is seen as king. Conversely, the world contrasted with the sensory world, is the spiritual world. It is this world that gives rise to prayer. It is this world that causes us to experience the presence of God. But this world, just as science can be abused, can itself be abused. Manipulative people can become like cult leaders. Spirits must be tested for their goodness. But we must seek the truth in both worlds, for in so doing, we encounter God.
