"I am the way and the truth and the life"
Is there some primordial being existing outside of time that created time, space, and matter? How can we know?
We probed this question in high school youth group last night and realized that, although it is reasonable to believe in God, there is no scientific reasoning that proves God's existence. A level of faith is required.
Our Middle School youth experienced God when they brought simple gift bags to the Nursing Home on Tuesday. Seeing the smiles and gratitude on the faces of their residents as we passed out gifts and sang them songs was an amazing experience. God is love, and visiting those who are sick is always an experience of love.
While we may not be able to prove God exists, we can certainly see him in his works. Just as we can know an artist by studying his works, so too we can know God by experiencing his love in one another, his masterpieces.
