Our Quest

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

When serving as a professor of science and of astronomy at Harvard, Owen Gingrich, preached a lay sermon in the Washington National Cathedral in which he argued that the creation of humanity in God’s image gives our self-consciousness and our qualities of creativity, conscience and consciousness. He said, “one consequence  of this self –consciousness, is that we ponder our place in the universe, and we seek to find meaning and to find God. The search for God is subtle, but perhaps it is this long journey, this search, more than anything else, that makes us human. We are thinking part of this vast and sometimes very intimidating  universe, and our quest could well be the purpose of it all.”     -Quoted by Peter J. Gomes in “The Good Book” (New York: William Morrow and Company, 1996), 325.

See Psalms 19, 27 and 115 for further reflection.

Let us pray that our quest might be the purpose of it all.

Still in One Peace,

Pastor David J. Jensen
