Lavished and adopted in love

God lavishes us with his endless love, and adopts us into his family, making us co-heirs with Jesus himself.

In the summer of 2013 I left my IT job (writing web software) and moved house to start a training post to be a vicar. Rather than go straight from one to the other, I decided to go via Western USA and Canada, in a convertible Ford Mustang.

In January 2019 Jess and I managed (what I hope isn't!) the trip of a lifetime to New Zealand. We hired a small campervan and drove around both islands for four weeks - and loved it! The only bad part was not being able to stay longer.

Quotable

The following extract is from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams, concerning the Babel Fish:

Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bogglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God. The argument goes something like this:

“I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”

“But,” says Man, “the Babel fish is a dead giveaway isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves that you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. Q.E.D.”

“Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

“Oh, that was easy,” says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.

Most leading theologians claim that this argument isn’t worth a pair of fetid dingo’s kidneys, but that didn’t stop Oolon Colluphid from making a fortune when he used it as the central argument in his book Well That About Wraps It Up For God.
