This week I made the decision to cancel my subscription to the 14 magazines I read regularly. So what did I learn this week other that I saved a bunch of money on magazines and made a few bucks on a Beatles book? I learned that print isn't dead in all cases.

Is there reason in belief? More importantly to me, is there reason to believe? For me, yes. Belief in God provides a way to explain the yearning and the searching for something that we intrinsically know we once had but now eludes us. Belief in God provides for hope and possibility even in the presence of evil. Reason insists that creation is the result of evolution; cold, hard facts. It is belief in a compassionate and merciful God that expands our awareness of the awesomeness of the universe and all it encompasses, reminding us of our obligations to all creatures, great and small.
