Are You Connected to the Universe?

Feeling connected to the Universe can happen almost anywhere, at sunrise or sunset, at the beach looking at the endless expanse of ocean, deep in the forest, or riding through the mountains as I did last month.

How could God hear all those prayers being offered up at the same time? There were several hundred at our church and many more throughout Tupelo who were in church from 11 until noon on Sunday, plus in our state and country and around the world. Lots of prayers were being offered up all at once, so how did God sort them all out.
