Forgive my preoccupation with YA writing, science and religion. You see, I was once a teacher, a candidate for a physics major, and a candidate (novice) for the missionary priesthood (work in New Guinea). I can’t lose my past, as I can’t lose you if I knew you, and that’s how the present plays out.
We work our lives out with all we meet, and that is ruled by Providence (fate). I leave the unknown to the Lord, as I advise you to do, and even as I would have advised Einstein to do, when he couldn’t come up with a universal theory (theory of everything).
And so I ask you to put up with me, for that indeed is God’s will for you. He makes no apologies for his actions, for who could improve on the ways of the Lord?
