if God had a name, what would it be?
and would you call it to His face?
if you were faced with Him in all His glory,
what would you ask if you had just one question?
and yeah God is great, yeah God is good
what if God was one of us?
just a slob like one of us

if God had a face what would it look like?
and would you want to see?
if seeing meant that you would have to believe
in things like heaven and the saints and all the prophets
(tunes by Joan Osbourne, One of Us, 1995)

without making a stop in our mind
rewind back a bit, there must be a time when you in these two situations: Continue reading
if you ‘re into photography & beautiful architecture,
then flickr is a good place to dig around.

then i asked him, “do you remember jodie foster in the the movie Contact ?”
