This letter appears in today's Leicester Mercury:
Open your mind to greater power
Having read with interest and may I say a certain surprise, the letters recently dismissing the idea of a Creator, I feel I must contradict these views that there is no God.
Just open your mind and soul and your spiritual eyes to the creative world we live in, and the diversity of animals, plants, trees, birds, fish, the colours of nature, the creativity of the human race, the sun and rain which gives us the conditions to grow our food to sustain life.
There's the free will to choose between good and evil deeds in our life. All life flows from a creative force in humankind.
I believe there is a power greater than ourselves that gave us the world and the life and nature in it to sustain our every need.
Phil Dews, Anstey
