Before we reach its height.

Each of us holds a different image of God.
There are as many perspectives on
the nature of God as there are people.

Perhaps there is a specific answer,
that we will never learn - in this lifetime.
Perhaps the nature of God is so complex and multifaceted
that each view of God describes an aspect of the complex whole.
Or perhaps the nature of God is actually defined by our beliefs.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

they will live for you.
