Letter to Readers:

The core of this issue of “Whittlings” is a sermon preached in 1989 at the First Baptist Church of Littleton MA.  But the intended audience then and now was and is all of humanity that is hell-bent on destroying the creation within which we live and move and have our being.

The Corruption of the Womb of God

If we understand, metaphorically, that the entire creation dwells within the womb of God and that our very own lives are sustained within this womb through the indwelling presence of Christ, we might, we just might before it is absolutely too late, cease our suicidal destruction of    those life sustaining extensions of God’s grace that we know in the air, water and soil. We might, to speak, metaphorically, cease our suicidal corruption of the womb of God.
