Enjoy Life

Recently, buses in Britain and now Canada have carried banners with  the following message...

One Church responded to this in a very creative way.  On Saturday, January 31st, in the Globe & Mail, a full page ad was taken out.  It included the 'problably no God' banner, but added a second option, 'there's probably a God'...

Both positions agree on 'enjoying life' as a good life choice.  We certainly have to decide for ourselves whether or not we believe there is a God.  But that doesn't change the reality (or 'non'reality' of God.)   If God exists, God exists whether or not we believe in God!  What Christians might want to ask themselves is if the way they believe in God is helping them to enjoy life, to feel 'fully alive'.  If not, it might be hard to invite a friend to consider following in the path of Jesus.

The ad was a part of an United Church initiative called 'Wondercafe'.  On the home page, 'Wondercafe' is described as 'the home of open-minded discussion and exploration of spiritual topics, moral issues and life's big questions.' If this interests, you can find Wondercafe at .
