My family and I watched Prince Caspian last night after dinner and I had the strangest feeling near the end when Aslan showed up. I thought to myself, I wish there really was a god. After the movie I mentioned this thought to my wife. She looked at me funny and asked why.
After some thought I came to the conclusion that what I was feeling was nostalgia. I was remembering a time in my life when things had easy answers and I “KNEW” what was going on. I remember my mom reading me The Chronicles of Narnia when I was young. When anything was possible if I really believed.
Now I know that some things are not possible no matter how much we believe. Belief is fine, but it has no bearing on the universe, just our perception of it.
I wonder if I am the only ex-Christian to have this kind of nostalgic feeling?
