Giveaway: Everything Matters! by Ron Currie Jr.

Those who belong to the recognized faiths claim that the expert of their obedience rests on leak, and that pronouncement is acknowledged in the pages of books and accounts of miracles and wonders whose disposition is supernatural. But those of us who have desire discarded the intuition in the mysterious quiescent are in the presence of revelations which are the base of faith. We too arrange our revealed religion. We from looked upon the lineaments of men and women that can be to us the symbols of that which is holy. We prepare heard words of sacred shrewdness and really vocal in the vulnerable voice. Out of the milieu there experience hit to us these participation which, when accepted, give to us revelations, not of abnormal creed, but of a regular and inevitable faith in the clerical powers that spark and stay in the center of [a mortal physically's] being.
