I really like the look of your new blog!

Hey dude - yeah, I think I have grown to actually hate that phrase. You have to get down into a good bit of theological discussion to actually talk about "how" He is in "control." And some of the answers may well not sit well with many people. Maybe we end up finding out that HE has, in His "control," opted not to control everything. He has given us response-ability, which says that we also have the ability NOT to respond and live inside the consequences. And in the very very big picture, that's a good thing.

It's like that other horrible saying, "everything happens for a reason." God bless Calvin. Well, not really. Or maybe some things happen for a reason... that is BAD. And some things just happen. This is the world we live in. Everything is not a neat little God-wrapped package. That's just not healthy. Can and will God take all things and wrap them into the eventual renewal of the cosmos? Sure, but inside the economy that He Himself has created.

OK, of course books have been written on this stuff. I just thought of those things. Peace to you and your family.
