Buechner: the existence of God

Saturday, December 17, 2011
    Commemoration of Eglantine Jebb, Social Reformer, Founder of ‘Save the Children’, 1928
    —God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.
    —1 Timothy 6:15b-16 (NIV)
    It is as impossible for us to demonstrate the existence of God as it would be for even Sherlock Holmes to demonstrate the existence of Arthur Conan Doyle.
    ... Frederick Buechner (b. 1926), Wishful Thinking: A Theological ABC, revised, HarperCollins, 1993, p. 36 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Father, we know You through Your Son.
