“Human beings are made in the image of God.
The Scriptures tell us that there exists an intimate and mysterious connection
between human beings and the very being of God;
so much so that to wrong a human being,
is to wrong God Himself.
This connection is a mystery. Human beings are mysteries and should be treated as such.”
As C.S. Lewis said,
“You have never met a mere mortal…””
Rev. Ryan Cook
Vancouver, British Columbia
The remainder of the C.S. Lewis quote is very thought provoking.
"There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - these are mortal, and their lives are to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendors." Which one will you be?
