Dear Lia my Beloved Sister:
Thank you so much again for such a marvelous time with you and your lovely family my dear Sister Lia!
I will treasure always the time that we again shared together, and most importantly our very enlightening conversations that we shared together such that we both have learned from one another...
Please tell Dalek that that a Universalist “in its primary sense, refers to religious, theological, and philosophical concepts with universal application or applicability.” This is true according to the Wikipedia Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universalism.
Please tell him that we also found that an Existentialist “is generally considered to be the philosophical and cultural movement which holds that the starting point of philosophical thinking must be the individual and the experiences of the individual”. That also being from Wikipedia at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Existentialist.
In my brother Dalek’s assessment of these two items of human thinking: I say “He is precisely correct in his studies of these two basic concepts.” More to the point, I was silently praying while looking for a particular answer from my brother Daleck when I put to him the question “What in your mind My Brother is the opposite of an Existentialist?”
I prayed very strongly that he would see where this is going, and based on the examples of the Universalist further down the page on Wikipedia that he would say possibly say to Jill, to myself, and to Dalek to himself possibly in his own upcoming belief might say “A Universalist, which is the direct opposite of an Existentialist, is a Christian”.
I know a statement like that is a big leap of faith, and I don’t mean to imply anything. I was simply pleasantly surprised in my conversation with Dalek that his studies has progressed that far. Perhaps later in life and time permitting, a leap of faith might come when needed or more commonly through personally felt tragedy. It sounded like this almost happened for you when you talked to Jill and I about your automobile accident that it changed how you look on life from that day forth – about how every moment is precious because we do not know the day nor the hour when our time in this present and physical life will be at an end.
I am so thankful for the time that we shared together my Dearest Sister Lia, and I look forward to spending more time with you and your family again.
I will try my best effort to have the photo gallery pictures and blog entry available for your family to look at as soon as possible at http://home.klump-pdx.com/ngallery and also http://www.klump-pdx.com/blog respectively.
Sincerely yours, and may God Bless!
