Sunday morning paint by numbers. All packaged up and ready to sell.

The real irony is that this was produced by one of the largest megachurches in America so I can’t tell if it’s meant to be self-depreciating or satire… perhaps both?

Psychic Conjuring

This is what I’ve thought for a while. I’m glad there is proof now.

There is a very real connection that happens between storyteller and reader. I’m in the middle of writing a novel and I’m constantly thinking about my future readers. How will they read this? Am I describing this scene just so? Will they be able to experience my characters as I do? I am truly trying to transfer my thoughts and emotion to the reader through my stories. Engross them in the fictional context so they care about what is going on in the story.

There is a very real sense of telepathy, a deeper communication going on than mere conversation. The very best books conjure substantial reaction in the reader out of thin air. It’s a miracle. That is what I’m going for. Sometimes it is slow going but I love my characters and I hope readers will also love them. If anything, the article I’ve linked above gives me hope that I can strengthen a person’s brain by reading my fiction.

What a gift.

Whoever, then, thinks that he understands the Holy Scriptures, or any part of them, but puts such an interpretation upon them as does not tend to build up this twofold love of God and our neighbor, does not yet understand them as he ought.

Accordingly, when anyone claims, “Moses meant what I say,”and another retorts, “No, rather what I find there,” I think that I will be answering in a more religious spirit if I say, “Why not both, if both are true?” And if there is a third possibility, and a fourth, and if someone else sees an entirely different meaning in these words, why should we not think that he was aware of all of them?

The goal of civilization is sedentary culture and luxury. When civilization reaches that goal, it turns toward corruption and starts being senile, as happens in the natural life of living beings.

The difference between how a person treats the powerless versus the powerful is as good a measure of human character as I know.

If this life is not a real fight, in which something is eternally gained for the universe by success, it is no better than a game of private theatricals from which one may withdraw at will. But it feels like a real fight.
