During an 1890 sermon, Bishop Wright preached on the impending return of Christ. He said everything God had sent man to do on earth was done. A member of the congregation jumped to his feet and said that someday man would fly. The bishop responded with the now famous line: "If God had intended man to fly, he would have given him wings." When we view the whole of creation, we realize God's work was indeed good... and incomplete. He did not give us wings with which to fly, for example, or replacement parts for failing organs and antibodies for deadly diseases. His creative work is a good start; our job is to complete the task of subduing, improving, and imagining what can be from what is. When Mary asked, "How will this be?" the angel of God replied: Nothing is impossible with God.
