1. The first is from a twenty-something man named Larry, who stated, "Organized religion just causes trouble. I believe in my own God." [What makes me think that his God is named "Larry"?]
2. The second is from a student at the Lower School at Rumsey Hall: "Last night, I had a dream that I was a skelton." I would have asked him if he were named "Red" in the dream, but that reference is 34 years older than the student. Then he told me that Jesus came to him in the dream and made sure he wasn't a "skelton" anymore. In fact, because of Jesus, "No one would ever have to be a skelton again."
Perhaps meaningful religious thought skips a generation.
