      Trinidad,

      Your exactly right. This means we wait. That's the thrust of faith
      anyway....putting everything you are on the line and waiting for
      things promised. As far as a geography of existence I'm sure it is
      beyond the computation of our cognitions. Non-existence doesn't exist
      Trinidad. It's an aberreation of the post-modern imagination. It's
      certainly not factual, because as our Western society has come to
      define fact, it's not a precise computation nor tangible. You can't
      prove non-existence. There's just nothing there. It does exist as a
      concept within our brains becuase of our use of negation in the
      logical process. I will admit this leads me to question ex nihilo, or
      God creating out of nothing. I looked back in the creation account
      this morning and actually and doesn't neccasaily say he did. However,
      my faith doesn't rest on a dogma, or a defintive theology. Faith and
      dogma seem to be on opposite sides of a fence.

      Grace and Peace,

      Nolan
