Irenic Thoughts

Irenic. The word means peaceful. This web log (or blog) exists to create an ongoing, and hopefully peaceful, series of comments on the life of King of Peace Episcopal Church. This is not a closed community. You are highly encouraged to comment on any post or to send your own posts.


Just a Minute

In worship today, we read the Second Letter from Peter in which the Apostle wrote,
Do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like one day.
This verse is why a boy asked God: What is a million years like to you?"

God responded in a manner to which Jimmy could relate. "A million years to me, Jimmy, is like a minute."

"Oh," said Jimmy. "Well, then, what's a million dollars like to you?"

"A million dollars to me, Jimmy, is like a penny."

"Wow!" remarked Jimmy, getting an idea.

"You're so generous... can I have one of your pennies?"

God replied, "Sure thing, Jimmy! Just a minute."
