Yesterday, God Laughed: 33 Lessons on Becoming More God Conscious
In 1976, in a small college in Manhattan, Kansas, former Senator Mark Hatfield, from the state of Oregon, told the student body during a chapel service that the United States Congress simply reflects the moral fabric of society. The men and women who make up our political class simply indicate the degree of ethical standards the country wants. If the nation wanted more godly leaders, they would elect them. If the country wanted to be more “God conscious,” the electoral process would reflect that.
There is a great deal of truth in what Senator Hatfield had to say. America should be more God conscious, for God is not only transcendent (beyond all physical laws), He is immanent (existing or operating within). “For in him we live, and move, and have our being” (Acts 17:28).
Reflecting on a variety of people, ideas, and events in contemporary culture, this book contains 33 short articles designed to assist people to be—what the Senator urged so many years ago—more “God conscious.”
