one to read and share: An MIT Professor Meets the Author of All Knowledge

“I once thought I was too smart to believe in God. Now I know I was an arrogant fool who snubbed the greatest Mind in the cosmos—the Author of all science, mathematics, art, and everything else there is to know. Today I walk humbly, having received the most undeserved grace. I walk with joy, alongside the most amazing Companion anyone could ask for, filled with desire to keep learning and exploring.”

Maybe in this new month, we all just need the gift of Joy… a bit of Hope? To stand together — FOR each other — knowing that an act of kindness, giving it forward, can be more powerful than any sword in starting movements that move us all toward Love.

 Want the gift of light breaking into all the broken places, into all the places that feel kinda abandoned? 

These pages are for you. It’s possible — abundant joy is always possible, especially for you.

threatening your heart.
