The Big Apple Coalition of Reason has launched a new campaign in New York’s subways with posters asking passengers, “A million New Yorkers are good without God. Are you?”
Of course I know that people can be essentially good people without God. I know many wonderful, thoughtful, happy, productive, loving people who don’t believe in God.
Relating back to my post from yesterday, however, I also think that a person just trying to live a good life is selling himself short at some point. Because there’s more for us.
This is one of my very favorite quotes from Pope John Paul II:
Nichole Nordeman’s “Legacy” is a special anthem I go back to a lot when I think about how I want to live my own life. The refrain:
I want to leave a legacy,
how will they remember me?
Did I choose to love?
Did I point to You enough to make a mark on things/
I want to leave an offering
A child of mercy and grace who blessed Your name
I want to leave a legacy
I think there is a lot of judgement in this post.
