The Pessure of Facts On a Closed Mind

 

The door of a bigoted mind opens outwards so that the only result of the pressure of facts upon it is to close it more snugly. -Ogden Nash, author (1902-1971)

 

Wow, I wish I could say this isn’t true.  This came to mind because of a letter I got today.  Unfortunately. 

Ah, well, God is the only one who can open a closed mind and convict a hardened heart.  And I can always pray.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    This brought to mind our message conversation of a few weeks ago. I am sorry you are experiencing this. I think it all the more strengthens us to be compassionate, loving, open, & transparent, to all. Will ya’ll be going to OH next weekend?

    So very true. To really understand you must first be willing, and then the Spirit must do the “opening up”. At that point we will be open to listen to others, but not until then it seems. Yes, we keep praying.

    @bafocus_2 – You mean for youth camp?   No, we had to give that up this year…….  Just too much going on.  It is a real bummer.
