An old poem describes a woman walking through a meadow, mediating on nature. While strolling about, she came upon a field of golden pumpkins. In the corner of the field stood a majestic, huge oak tree. She sat under the oak tree musing on the strange twist in nature which put tiny acorns on huge branches and huge pumpkins on tiny vines. She thought to herself, “God blundered with creation! He should have put the small acorns on the tiny vines and the large pumpkins on the huge branches.” Nodding off, the woman stretched out under the oak tree for a nap. A few minutes after falling asleep, she was awakened by a tiny acorn bouncing off her nose. Chuckling to herself, she rubbed her nose and thought, “Maybe God was right after all!”
All questions at the public meeting that day were about life beyond the grave. The Master only laughed and did not give a single answer. To his disciples, who demanded to know the reason for his evasiveness, he later said, "Have you observed that it is precisely those who do not know what to do with this life who want another that will last forever?" "But is there life after death or is there not?" persisted a disciple." Is there life before death?-that is the question!" said the Master enigmatically.
As students entered the lunch line at Asubry Theological Seminary at Kentucky, they were greeted by a sign over a bowl of apples that read: “Take only one apple. God is watching you.” At the other end of the line there was a large pan of cookies with a sign hastily written, reading: “take as many cookies as you can, god is back watching the apples.”
