[Content Note: Christian Supremacy.]
On our always-fun local church sign over the weekend: "Life without God is like an unsharpened pencil. It has no point."
That's a quote generally attributed to Billy Graham, I think, although I'm not sure if he coined it or just famously repeated it, or even if he ever actually said it at all.
Every time I walk the dogs, I walk past that church sign and am reminded that my life is considered pointless—just a friendly little bit of rank hostility, right in my neighborhood.
This morning, the church was getting ready for a rummage sale, and some of its members were out on the lawn, sorting through stuff. As I passed, they waved and smiled, and I waved and smiled back.
A pointless moment in the pointless life of a pointless person.
