We are used to considering things. We buy cars and houses, clothes and food. We have family, friends, and viewpoints as well as allegiances and beliefs.
And yet many of us sense that there is something beyond our possessions and relationships and limited horizons that is far greater than we can begin to imagine.
An exchange from one of G. K. Chesterton's Father Brown novels:
"I'm afraid I'm a practical man," said the doctor with gruff humor, "and I don't bother much about religion and philosophy."
"You'll never be a practical man till you do," said Father Brown.
