I know some people are caught in the debates about creation and evolution … and the discussions surrounding science and religon. But, this one from S.K. is quite a twist and turn on the words and the mind – perhaps it helps too with daily u-turns (repentance)

“God creates out of nothing, wonderful, you say: yes, to be sure, but he does what is still more wonderful: he makes saints out of sinners.”~ Soren Kiekergaard, July 7, 1838

I know there’s a place for more intellectual questions (usually tend to be a little more detached and academic in nature) but once we connect it with daily existence it does make a difference in the way we live (or choose not to live).

    Maybe to create something out of nothing (ex nihilo) and to make saints out of sinners are just two facets of the same creative power. 🙂
