Like a Box of Chocolates

After my encounter with the Almighty almost 19 years ago now, I went on a quest for knowledge. About two years into my research I came across the Nag Hamadi library. These Gnostic manuscripts were found in the Egyptian desert. Untouched since the time of Jesus, these documents finally were unearthed from the sands of time in 1945.

I was astounded when I came to a part of the collection entitled the Book of Thomas the Contender. Thomas quotes Jesus: "For the body is a domestic animal. Therefore, you must go about perfecting yourself ". At last, I had found someone else in history who clearly knew about the beast within; and, that someone was Jesus.

Beginning December 1st I am going to act like an Advent calendar. But instead of chocolate surprises on a daily basis, I will be serving up food for thought on each of the 24 days leading up to Christmas. Rest assured though, my daily meditations/posts won't be dishing out that old time religion or tales of flying reindeer. It is time we had a second look at Jesus Christ through the lens of evolution. The way things are going it is looking more and more like our species' survival depends on it.   

Happy Holy Days 2015

Faithfully yours,
