You want purpose? You wouldn’t know what to do with it. But, fine, I’ll show you what purpose you may grasp.

You are the mind, consciousness emerged from an intricate mass of cells because said mass survives longer and procreates better with a mind caring for it. You are a shepherd for the flock you ignobly call “body.”

Probably you’re already fulfilling your purpose, then. Or maybe not. But if you are, there’s a delightful side-quest to work on until the flock returns to dust. Someone called it¬†“Procreation in a ¬†beautiful medium.”

Get to it.

Tell Me a Story

Stories are important to me.  You want to know why?  I’ll tell you.

  1. Stories can hold a lot more meaning and truth in a shorter form than mere preaching and info-dumps.
  2. Stories are an expression of the creative spark that God placed in every human.
  3. Stories can preserve, proclaim and process Truth.
  4. Jesus told stories.  Much of the Bible is devoted to stories.
  5. Stories, when properly enjoyed, are more fun than TV, movies and video games put together.
  6. Stories are able to tell us many things about many subjects in a very short time.
  7. Stories exercise our creativity.
  8. Stories last forever.
  9. Stories, when written well, can be a powerful force for good.
  10. I like stories.
