Is this another symptom of the "NOW" generation? Contrast this with the opening lines of Robert Browning's poem :Rabbi Ben Era: "Grow old along with me, The best is yet to be The last of life for which the first was made."

"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:13) Sincerely, Yours in the Master's service, Chris Ederesinghe
