Comment of the Week

“Speaking of eternities from your Sunday with Sisson, perhaps they do exist. But perhaps it’s the flip of what we feel to be true. The future and the past feel eternal but are finite, while the present feels fleeting but is eternal. Our whole lives is spent living in the eternal present.”

-Well said, Aaron.
