Where Did All This Come From?
Rev. Chandler Stokes
As throughout the confirmation series, we find again that the questions we ask really do matter. And when we ask about the Source of “all this,” religion does not answer the scientific question, but it tells a deep and resonant story about the universe. And the metaphors we use for that Source (Should we name that Source with a verb like “Love” or with a noun like “Father”?) lead us deep into the complex and mysterious heart of God. And those metaphors also make a claim on who we are; they call us to be participants and not mere observers in the universe.
