“Why are we here?
What are we doing this for?”
Eep, The Croods

“Perhaps a new world lies beyond the horizon of our experience,a world that we only know through hints and rumours.”
Theologian Alistair McGrath, The Unknown God, page 10

“Lord give me what you have made me want; I praise and thank you for the desire that you have inspired; Perfect what you have begun,And grant me what you have made me long for.”
Anselm of Canterbury (1033-1109)

“Starting from scratch, he made the entire human race and made the earth hospitable, with plenty of time and space for living so we could seek after God, and not just grope around in the dark but actually find him. He doesn’t play hide-and-seek with us. He’s not remote; he’s near.”
Acts 17:25-26, MSG

“We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!”
1 Corinthians 13:12, MSG

“I am the light of the world”
Jesus in John 8:12, NIV
