Based on a Sermon Delivered October 13, 2007
in Memory of My Mother-in-Law,
Marion Isobel Ross (nee MacGibbon), 1926 - 2007
The Rev. David Ewart
To begin, I want to say at the outset that I have a rather simple belief that there is more to life than meets the eye. More to reality than meets the eye. And when I say, “more to life than meets the eye,” I don’t simply mean there are also our hopes, dreams, beliefs, memories, and imaginations – though of course all of these exist and are more than the eye can see. But these are all mental activities that exist only inside our heads. What I mean is that I believe that that there are real things outside of us; real things that are more than the eye can see.
