Holier Than Thou? — I doubt it.

I never thought this Presidential race would become one on theology.  I thought maybe a passing reference as to why we don’t say prayers at football games.  But here we are arguing rather gamely about Christianity, Islam, and oh yes, all those other beliefs.  Mr. Santorum is front and center deciding who is worthy of Heaven. 

I don’t suppose it matters “under the canopy of eternity” (as one of my professors in college used to say) what we think.  More and more when one sees an expanding universe, one has real humility for our place in the cosmic scheme of things.  Like the dust mites that live in our home, we live as almost invisible amidst the galaxies that stagger even the concept of infinity.

I would not presume to know the deep purpose of existence.  It is enough to go on existing, fighting every day to make my own little universe a better place for all who touch it.  I can only observe that those who wear their holiness on their sleeve are in danger of finding everyone very unsatisfactory, including themselves.

About christineemmert

Words have been part of my life. First the spoken word in my time as an actress and increasingly the written word in my shift to writer. I write across the genres, but mostly as a playwright and poet. My interest as my life extends is in the realm of tethering myth to the mundane reality where I live. In this vein I have expanded into stories and novels. Presently I look at how myths taken from past cultures can affect us today. Hence my novella of Lilith which is out on Kindle . I live in the Eastern Woodlands where I try to incorporate nature into my many writing projects. We are so in danger of losing that link to our very planet!
