THE story has been told of how the first Russian cosmonaut, Yuri Gagarin, was instructed by Soviet premier Khrushchev to watch out for angels when he went into space in April, 1961. On his return he reported that he had seen no angels. Khrushchev is said to have replied, “Good, I knew you wouldn’t. There are no such things!”
It is all too easy to assume that what you do not see does not exist!
Do you believe in angels? Do you know who they are, or what they do? Are they just figments of the artists’ imagination in religious paintings down the centuries? Is there really something out there we ought to know about? Is it important to know if they exist?
