A fictional conversation about judgement.
The Path We Walk
“Do you go to church?”
“No. Not any more.”
”I go every week.”
”You could attend online.”
”I could. I prefer to talk with God outside in nature.”
“But churches are holy.”
”So is nature.”
”All the talk about spirituality in nature confuses people. It’s not like going to church.”
”What about The Sermon on the Mount? The garden of Gethsemane?”
“Those were Biblical times. Do you read your Bible?”
“No, not often these days.”
”Mmmm. I read mine every day. I’ll pray for you.”
“And I for you.”
As I walked away, I wondered if he thought my prayers were in some way less valid. Less heard. I chose to pray for him just the same.
