You have probably heard the news stories from Britain concerning the “British Humanist Association” bus advertising campaign. The project, which has attracted hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations as well as the support of prominent atheist Professor Richard Dawkins, has plastered buses across the UK with signs that say, “There’s probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life.” And while Dawkins said that he would have preferred if the word “probably” had been dropped the BHA said they used the word “probably” because didn’t want to appear dogmatic. That was nice of them.

I heard recently that a similar campaign will come to Canada and I have no problem with that. I love the freedom we have in this country, even the freedom for people to say things I don’t necessarily agree with.

I don’t think the church will see a great falling away but if it results in people talking about the existence of God and seeking him, it can’t be a bad thing.

And if you have a personal relationship with God, that in itself should be a great reason to stop worrying and enjoy life. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
