God Shaped Vacuum

Everybody basically has an empty hole inside of them that they try to fill with money, drugs, alcohol, power – and none of the material stuff works. – Robert F. Kennedy, Jr (Daniel Cher and Vicki Sheff, “Toxic Avenger,” People, July 22, 1991, 74

 

I used to say: “There is a God-shaped hole in me.” For a long time I stressed the absence, the hole.  Now I find it is the shape which has become more important – Salman Rushdie, Indian – English novelist.

 

There is a God-shaped vacuum in the heart of everyman, which cannot be filled by any created thing but only by God the Creator, made known through Jesus Christ. – Pascal

–Pastor Ward Clinton
