The Meaning of Life

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

The Meaning of Life

Post by UncleBob » Sat Apr 14, 2018 1:28 pm

The meaning of life is to eat a good meal once in a while, read a good book now and then, deliver the occasional wedgie unto those who need one, and hydrate. That's about it.

The discussion is over.

Just ask wosbald.

Carry on. That is all.

When They Asked Me

to explain ‘The Meaning Of Life’
from a poet’s perspective

I answered
my wife’s eyes,

which was true and big enough. They
see the rest and the rest rests in them;

like the archetypal tortoise who
bears the universe on his back

the splendor of it all
contained in the carapace

it is there in her eyes—
Charlie Parker, a child’s laughter

mountain and creek, the sweet
water that runs cold and clear

runs in the deep interstices of reposed
stone between the summits

(it is these spaces that define us)

Oh, her eyes!
. . . be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you. Ephesians 4:32 (NKJV)

The most improper job of any man, even saints, is bossing other men. Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity.. J.R.R. Tolkien

To a Christian, enduring the occasional undeserved wedgie is the meaning of life.

Heard a message recently where the preacher mentioned God's first commands to man, make babies and eat. :taco:

You get older
Things start to hurt
You go to work anyway
Until one of the things that hurts kills you.

I was going to give a serious answer, and then I saw this was in the youth room.
