Illus.: “Buddah Is Sleeping”

In a large city in Sri Lanka there is a huge statue of Buddah in a reclining position. The chiseled face is calm, the eyes are closed and the head rests upon one hand. A full 50 feet long, the image is impressive except for one thing: Buddah is sleeping while the world goes by. He is paying no attention to his worshippers. How could he. The “he” is an “it.” It is a thing, not a person. How unlike that our God is. He cares for us. He watches over us. He protects and blesses us. Shame on us when we are filled with fear and uncertainty.
