To square this circle is impossible
There's no finer sight than Brandy at full speed along the sea edge.From a distance he seems to spend more time in the
air than on the sand! He just seems to fly along! Leaps into the air after a ball or short chases after groups of birds are
one thing. A long run at speed is quite another. Once a hang-glider came down on the sands way ahead of us. The pilot glided
low for some distance before landing. This was Brandy's chance to give chase. There was no chance of him actually catching
the craft but the dog's persistence paid off. The glider had come to rest only a few seconds before Brandy caught up with
it.The dog gave the man a welcome back to earth he would not forget. He tried to round him up as if he were a group of miscreants.
Jumping up at him and barking his welcome the man must have thought the dog had taken leave of his senses. The man and
his craft must have appeared completely alien to the dog. After all people don't fall out of the sky onto the sand do they?
Perhaps he was thinking, excitedly, if men can fly, one day maybe dogs will too!
Some things will always remain impossible; no matter advances in science and technology. It's clear while the earth
spins on its axis and the sun continues to shine there will be day and night and while the earth's tilt is as it is there
will be the march of Spring and splendid Autumn colours for temperate latitudes.
In the moral sphere it's impossible to know God in a personal way by sheer effort of search or religious rites and practices.
It is not as if we can discover God for ourselves or please him by our own moral performance. Like the glider pilot coming
from the unknown into Brandy's experience God must come to us. He must reveal himself to us. Each of us needs a real life-experience
of his friendship.
Christians believe God has revealed himself in Jesus Christ. Christ is "God in focus" and it is only in a faith-relationship
with Christ that we can know God for ourselves.Each of us is invited into such a relationship. This is what God wants for
us and is prepared to give us as a free gift! WOW!
WOW....an expression of awe not a noise made by Brandy!
