Conviction about Things We Do Not See

So yesterday I posted a picture of the slate I got from my church roof, and my sister thought she saw a face in it.  Please don’t think I’m attributing miraculous intervention into this and I’m not going to offer my slate for sale on ebay, but I still think it’s a pretty cool coincidence. (Okay, my agnostic friend says that we are hardwired to see faces and that it’s just an optical illusion.  But I think it’s pretty nifty all the same!)
But some people couldn’t see it.  So let’s see if this helps:

Of course, the thing about God is, we don’t have to see Him to know that He is there–in our church buildings, in His beautiful creation, in each other. 🙂

“Faith is constant assurance concerning what we hope for and conviction about things we do not see.”

                        –St. Paul
