Vocatus atque non vocatus, Deus aderit. – Reflections by Greg Funderburk

“You will eventually find God whether you want to or not.”

Our congregational book for the summer, How Can I Find God, keeps offering compelling thoughts about God and us. As you go this summer, wherever life takes you, stay close to your church family and to your Heavenly Father by reading along. About half way through the book, author Frederick Buechner offers the quote referenced above, taken, from all places, the stone lintel of the Swiss home of famous turn of the century psychiatrist C.G. Jung, who was a contemporary of Sigmund Freud. Buechner offers us this interesting quote, then writes, If you want to (even if you don’t happen to believe God exists) all you have to do is find some quiet place, be quiet inside yourself, and ask God to let you find Him (or Him you). As far as I know, it is a prayer that is always answered.
